4My dear Mr Garnett

6Mr Mackenzie tells me you have got some more work for him. It is very,
7very good of you. It isn’t only for his own sake that I am glad, but
8my dearest friends being so much interested in him makes me doubly
9glad. I am leaving town on the 29th. I am very sorry not to have seen
10you but I have not once been able to make time to come to the Museum.

12Yours sincerely,

15If you should see Mrs Smith would you kindly tell her I have foolishly
16forgotten her address, & ask her to drop me a post card.
