[1 word illeg.] Sidcup

19thMar[ch]. 1899

Dear Dr. Wallace

My friends at Leighton have kindly got what I hope is the information you want. They obtained it from Mr. Malley, the clerk at the wharf who [[2]] has been there for 50 years:

I enclose your questions and the answers sent.

I am glad to say that Neill keeps on improving[?] and seems doing quite satisfactorily.

With kind regards [[3]]2 to yourself and Mrs. Wallace,

Believe me | Very truly yours | J. Archer [signature]
