1.  William Henry Hurlbert
William Henry Hurlbert (1827-1895), journalist and author, editor-in-chief of the New York World from 1876-1883 [more].

2.  all right
This is a follow up to Hurlbert's letter of 27 July 1887 (#02214). The 'formal thing' was probably JW's letter to the Secretary of State, 29 July 1887 (#01836) and a problem over his original request that the SBA become the 'Imperial' SBA. See letter from G. Lushington to JW, 30 July 1887 (#01837).

3.  'B. 1888. ... SS 8 8'
Written in another hand, probably by JW.
