Autograph Letter Signed to 'My dear Mrs Evy', saying he is "sorry you are not coming to England but I am not sure but that you are wise ... I am told all food will be doubled in price & house rents are enormous. The drawing room lists are all closed now & I fear it is hopeless to try and get in. I hear from an old friend of mine who is publishing a book that he too is advised to postpone it till after the Jubilee ... I am so glad you have seen Lady Lytton. I got a glimpse of her in Paris ... I know nothing yet about my waiting but if I am on duty during June I shall try & let my new house for the month & make a little money ... It was very nice of Sir Arthur to say what he did ... I have not forgotten the buttons for baby's brooch but am on the look out for them", 4 sides 8vo., 32 Orchard Street, W., 25th April no year.
