Dear Wallace

I sent you by post yesterday the copy by the three colour process of wolfs "Labrador Falcon," and also one or two of my last egg plates The loaker[?] lily bloom you gave my wife lasted nearly until we left for home. & only closed up on the Monday evening. I have seen Preese[?] several times since my return to town and he has promised to do what he can for your son It seems that Sir B. Lodge is not a business man at all & [[2]] does not trouble with business matters.

With kind regards from my wife & myself to you all

I remain | Yours truly | HE Dresser [signature]
