Dear Mrs.Jack

Thank you so much for your letter. I hope you have found a good way of disposing of the £5 for John . I was very glad to be able to send it to him.

It does seem a long time, fifteen years, since you have seen your relations in England, & I hope you will be able to manage a visit soon. This year, no doubt, London will be overcrowded for the Jubilee_ I hope we may look forward to a more settled future, but there’s always Germany, & ourselves reduced by our politicians to a defenceless state, to say nothing of their wretched bill, giving India away, to be in a hopeless state of anarchy.

I dont know if the enclosed newspaper cuttings would interest Jack, & there’s also one from today’s paper about Canada & her loans of all kinds. I’m afraid if she acts in this way, she will be unable to obtain anything in future on the London market. I was so sorry about Frank & do hope what is the matter will disappear as suddenly as it came on.
With all good wishes for the New Year & kindest remembrances to all.

Sincerely yours


P.S. The cuttings can be destroyed.
