Neatly and closely written on both sides of a 9 x 11.5 cm. card. In good condition, lightly aged. On his return from Cambridge the previous Saturday he 'found (as I expected) my family gone to Wales. Among their letters was the enclosed card. I assume it is from you.' He assures her that 'all is right', and that the 'spare room is ready, & will be ready, for you when you come on Thursday. I shall probably be gone, when you come, to Wales: but my movements will be not quite in my own control.' His wife will 'no doubt have explained' that 'all the books are at your disposal: and indeed everything else.' He gives 'Our Welsh address', and an Oxford address she may require if she wants 'anything at the house done before you come […] This you probably know: but for security I add it'.
