My dear Darwin

I think Tuesday 21st. if you are well enough would be the best day for Wickham2   he does not go till Friday 24th. we could go down by 3.30. or 4.40. train—& I could get back in time by 11.29 train on Wednesday but I shall see Wickham & Mellersh on Friday & will then settle with them.

Yours very sincly | B. J. Sulivan
