My Beloved Angee,
Your dear letter to hand and always brings afresh portion of love for today – well here I am plodding away thro' rain and mud day after day like Gideon's army "faint yet pursuing" – thro' mercy I get encouragement every day – P.F. send a wonderful letter for them I'm sure – so well pleased with the Dublin business last Monday. The lease of 70 High Street is missing now – Arundel always told me that Seldon held it as between Landlord and tenant but he says it is not in his hands and Arundel thinks it must be with the deeds in the Bank but I do not think this is probable as he could not have had access to these when it was made – it may be in the parcel of my Insurance papers in the tin case in the cupboard in my little room and I enclose the key so that you and Harry may have a look – the key is also the key to my drawer in the round table in my room – also enclose a cheque for £10 – have sent my usual remittance to Mr Besley today - £30 to my a/c and £20 deposit.
Post goes out at about 3pm here which is a very awkward time – God Bless you all and with much love believe me my beloved Angee.
Being very affectionate Husband
