O K! -

You're all right! by this I hope - and I shall doubtless get a letter from you tomorrow morning - Of course you will have written to Fitzroy Street -

We leave this hill tomorrow - and I expect shortly to get back to Paris - However all letters to the studio here meanwhile will be all safe - I wish you would let me know if any thing further is done with Reid[3] of Glasgow, about the "Fur Jacket[4]".

With kindest regards to yourself & your brother[5] -
