From Edward Blyth 3 May 1868
7 Princess Terrace, | Regents Park,
My dear Sir,
As I was returning to town yesterday after a week’s sojourn in Wilts, I saw in the train the Star newspaper, giving an account of the capture of a Greek brigand chieftain, who was at once recognised by the peculiarity of having the fore and middle fingers of both hands joined together. As this bears upon what I wrote to you about some time ago, it may be worth while calling your attention to the statement.1
Yours very truly, | E Blyth
