6 Dear EC.

8 I got the paper &c. Thanks. My thoughts are often at our old
9Millthorpe. You really must come to see the sunshine, & niggers in
10South Africa.
11
12 Give my love to dear old Max. I’m very well & strong all ways &
13quite satisfied ever since I allowed myself to speak what I thought.
14Give my love to Lucy & George. Ask them to write to me.
15
16 I’ll send them my likeness. I’m really going to be taken tomorrow!!
17 It was good of you to come to Chesterfield with me. I’ll always
18remember that.

20 Try Unwin if you have anything to print again. But I think if you put
21it in Watt’s hands it will be better than troubling yourself, &
22you’ll get more. Watt’s address is
23 A Watt Eq
24 2 Paternoster Sq
25 London EC.

27 I mean to give him all my things. Mention my name if you write & he
28may treat you better as he’s very anxious to please me.
