Wednesday eveg. June 24.

Dear Mr. Hanson -

Dont trouble about me tomorrow - I would not disturb you on your wedding day -

I wish you every happiness and beg that you will make my best compliments to Miss Murray[4] - and thank her for her letter[5] to me -

Some day when you are [p. 2] at Hastings you might write me a note and tell me how you came upon Dr. Bird[6] - and what his propositions amount to -

What all have you said to him - & what has he said to you. -

Very Sincerely Yrs

J McN W.
