CD's anxiety about the index [of Variation] will be relieved somewhat when he learns it has at last been set up.
My Dear Sir
I am glad to be able to alleviate your anguish a little regarding your Index— The first part arrived, as promised on Monday— Clowes set it up at once but as it was not enough to fill a sheet he did not send out proofs— Yesterdays post brought the remainder; consequently you will have one sheet from Clowes tomorrow & the rest on Tuesday. I shall be truly glad to get it out
My Dear Sir | yours very faithfully | John Murray
