My Dear Trollope.

I write this short epistle, to beg you, on your arrival in town, to let us know when you will come here. Wonderful croquet engines of great solidity have been constructed, and hopeless insanity rages on the subject,--saving in the bosom of the undersigned calm philosopher.

Faithfully Yours always
