My Dr. Nabs
Have received two epistles from you since writing last, which am
sorry to say was near three months ago, you must not think it unkind on my part matters, so long a time to go by without getting a line - for upon my word have commenced several times but have not really been able to finish a xxx backet before -
The contents of the above xxx letters have rather taken me aback, had no idea matters were progressing at xxx rate wish you - such being really the case almost sincerely thereby hope it will be for your xxx ultimate good. xxx
needless to say you must base my most ernest wishes for your ultimate good
