S. W.

My dear Master,

So many thanks for the copies of the "Whirlwind[3]"

Mr. Graham Ellis'[4] account, which Stands uncontradicted, is [p. 2] I should think, sufficient to convince the most unbelieving of believers, be he Jew, Journalist, or Art Critic, that Mr. Moore[5] got what he [p. 3] richly deserved, and that administered in the most deft fashion -

Alas! we have unfortunately to go out of town this morning -

Sincerely yours,
With love from [p. 4] Madam[6] to you both[7],

George W. Rowe
