110. Rue du Bac. Paris -
At the time of your last letter - just before, or immediately after - I recieved [sic] a letter from the Bank, telling me that I had overdrawn my account -
So you now understand why you heard no more from me - and also you know just where I am! -
I have been enabled to scrape together a few pounds and put them back - that the disaster might be repaired.
But the patience of the Directors must not be too much strained - and each day it is a question of how [p. 2] long? -
It is shocking that the Captain should be tried as he is! - I sympathise with him greatly - for his trouble is my own! a matter of staying! - How long! - and always how long one's health shall last while one is waiting waiting & waiting! -
I send you £5 - I cannot help you further now -
You had better keep your name on the Engineer Institution - I suppose -
