The Pages of the Letter

April 8, 1897

My dear Jinnie,

Many thanks. I have a good deal to think about now.

It’s a great bother those men leaving just when they did, and Lady Powis has The Measles in London and won’t let me come up to look for men. I have got one but he can’t come in until the 1st or 2nd week in May. We are trying to get him sooner but don’t think we shall succeed. I wish you would ask Camp if [he] knows of a footman. I don’t want him too old and about 5’10” or 11”.

Major Fisher is very nice to me, we have been shooting and fishing together.

How much money is Lady Cowper giving you extra? She ought to make you Housekeeper in London.

I am sorry the receipt was of no use.

I have an invite to a lunch given by Mr Addii the agent at Powis Castle on Saturday. His son comes of age. I don’t know if I shall be able to go yet; I don’t care much either.

I dreamt last night you and I were married and you disappeared before evening. I hope you have not made up your mind to marry Camp.

Fondest love from your own loving Bob.
