My Dear Arthur
  I have had this note from Mr. Delane.
  "At present I know nothing that is vacant, but it will be hard indeed if the next month or two does not produce something that will be at least worth offering him."
  "You may rely upon my bearing him in mind when an occassion offers."
  They are so chary at the Times of promising, that I hardly doubt the likelihood of something coming of this. Once on that paper and able to hold your own there, you can work your way on in your profession without anxiety for present means. It is highly desirable - above all things - that you should now get to the Short Hand. If you can begin with me here, at 10 tomorrow morning, do. 
  Ever Faithfully Yours
