H.M.S. “Beagle”

Dear Miss O’Reilly

Thanks for yours. I shall not be in town early enough Monday to accept your kind invitation to lunch according to my present plans I should not be in town till latish in the day. As I am still a little uncertain about things I will keep you informed by wire when I can come & see you – that is if you dont mind putting off your departure till the 1p.m. train Tuesday. It is not me, it is the ship & H.M.Service that is to blame. So please excuse me for not being more definite in my plans.

I did mention to Capt Kingsmill where you were & he said he had heard from your brother & seemed to know your address. I had met him the day before and we had been talking about you all. I hope you found my mother was leaving town – she must have a change, but she is so difficult to move.

Yours ever sincerely

Harry Stanhope
