'22 April 1898 postmark'
My dear Lavery.
Those two have not been seen for a long time - - Cowan was most charming about them when here - and told me he would gladly lend them when I wished - At the moment I did n't think of your having them - indeed I was scarcely well enough to think of any thing -
However this will do excellently - and with them I will try & send over one or two heads - which is unusual with me - at least so people suppose - So thats all right -
My other works have as you know all had to be abandoned for the time —
Dont be over saddened and solemn about Committee matters but write me something amusing as one Irishman should to another! that I may think I am getting rid of the "grippe" as I laugh!
