Recommends a tutor for CD's son.
I found out the name of the tutor I mentioned to you about whom you may think it worth while to enquire. I only knew him by reputation, not personally.
I am not sure of his parish but it joins on to Colney Hatch—Eastward and is a short walk from the C Hatch station— You will find it on a map at once—
I am off to the north tomorrow night and hope to be home to lunch on Tuesday
I hope Horsman will stay quietly, at least for the year he has promised: and that you will continue to like him—
Faithfully Yours | J Brodie Innes
