OAKBROOK,

RAVENSCOURT PARK, W.

Sept[ember]. 3. 1911

Dear Dr Wallace,

I had a letter from my Brother y'[ester]day in which he asks me to send a line in his name, thanking you again for your great kindness with regards to his translation of Goethe's poem.

Also -- to express his regret [[2]] at hearing of your recent suffering, coupled with the earnest hope that this was only a passing indisposition & you will soon feel quite yourself again.

A wish sincerely echoed | by | Yours faithfully | Sibell Brandon [signature]
