2pp, 4to. She begins by apologising for the tardy response to his letter, explaining: 'During these past months we have been very busy and I have found it almost impossible to find time for writing private letters beyond those to my immediate family.'

The letter ends: 'Your tour of Canada and The States must have been extremely interesting.'
