Dear Mr. Thomson -
A line in terrible haste to beg you to drop the matter I wrote to you about - I mean the cutting from the Pall Mall - I had scarcely glanced at it - and my mind was I suppose so full of Sheridan Ford that I fancied any thing - I have today seen another copy of the "Epitaph", and on reading see at once that it is quite another affair - and really very bright - and I wouldn't have it thought that I should have misunderstood.
May I rely upon you to say nothing about it. Have you done any thing about [p. 2] the Sarasate? -
Of course show the affidavit all over -
