Dear Miss O’Reilly

I am so sorry not to have answered your letter sooner & thanked you for again sending me an almanac which shall take the place of its predecessor. Many thanks for your kindness in thinking of me. I was so glad to hear some Victoria news also of Dr. Jone’s engagement. He is an excellent man, & deserves every success. I daresay the Royal Arthurs will improve as they grow
older. I daresay they are still young. I have just heard that Mrs. Snowden is in London & must try to find her out. By the writing paper you will see I am installed at the Admiralty. It is a somewhat trying life after the open air one has been accustomed to but they say one settles to it in time. Every day including Saturdays hard at it till 5.30 or perhaps later if there is a pressure on, makes one feel inclined to chuck it again. Please thank Jack for his letter. I have had his nugget set in a pin, & given it to Mrs. Wulffsohn to take out, so as to same the duty which I believe is heavy in B.C. I would so much like a trip out to your parts again, in fact shouldn’t mind staying there. I believe I prefer it to England. I hope your people are all well again. With kindest regards to all the family. Very sincerely yours

Harry Stanhope
