Thanks so much for the money. The publisher now has promised to pay
8: her at once for the translation she has done, & if he does she'll have
9: plenty of money next week, if he doesn't she won't be able to return
10: it till October when he pays her surely.
I can't get anyone who is quite able to take up & work that new
13: society idea yet. Perhaps I will in a few days. I wish Mrs Costelloe
14: could find some one. You see both of us are too busy with other things.
Thank-you more than I can say for being so ready to help her.
