6Dear old Man

8I got here this afternoon – every thing seems delightful, the quiet,
9the dear little birds pecking about on the lawn – but alas! I left
10Tucker in the taxi which brought my things up from the station! I
11always take it when I go to a new place where I may have asthma. When
12I was in Cape Town I wrote inside the case, that if it was lost & any
13one found it it was to be returned to

18If any one should by any possibility return it to you here: seeing
19your name inside – let me know. I’m going down to Scotland Yard
20tomorrow afternoon, but I’ve not much hope of finding it.

22I send you a rather sweet little cutting from Anna Purcell’s letter
23about Oliver. How every one does love him.
