My Dear Fred.
Devonshire Terrace is so inundated with begging letters, that I have given Topping written instructions not to take in anything that he suspects to be one. But as he cannot be certain, I have told him if he does take in anything that he suspects to be one. But as he cannot be certain, I have told him if he does take in any that he afterwards doubts about, not to forward it, but to keep it for you. Will you call there now and then in the morning—open such communications—and write in answer merely that I am out of town until the winter, and have begged you not to forward to me, in the country, anything of the kind, as my experience of such communications has decided me not to heed them, and to endeavor to do good in some more hopeful form?
I have about three shillings worth of postage to pay today for Imposter's documents.
You will have heard about he poney and Kate! All well, thank God.
When do you mean to come down again?
Loves from all.
P.S. I wish you would do what I have asked with a damned packet I send with this. The address is Mr. Frederick De Krüger, 5 Boundary Place, Blackfriars Road. Pay the postage.
