Volume 58: Sir George Macleay correspondence, 1848-1880: No. 220
You are here
most agreeable man when I was in the Island, but he is eccentric certainly & has [indecipherable] him just as he [indecipherable] you. He promised me many things but I have had nothing from him, some seeds of the [indecipherable] but there are glorious things to be got from there & I think of trying him again. Dr. King himself might get you all you could get from Thwaites. And now dear friend I have got to the length of my letter. I must just say that I was delighted to hear from Onslow that you had [indecipherable] all right again, that all the [indecipherable] party were well, that you had had a fair supply of rain, & that affairs generally with you were looking well. With [indecipherable] to you all.
Yrs affecte old friend
