My Beloved Angee,
In the continued goodness of God I have had much encouragement here in the business today, having taken some large orders from the leading Hindu firms – one of whom seemed very kindly disposed to me and after giving me a splendid order took and introduced me to another large dealer who also gave a large one. Tomorrow D.V. I go to dinner – 17 hours sail. God bless you my dearly beloved Angee.
From your very affectionate Husband.
