Boxall writes to recommend his friend, Mr. Brown, for the position of Master at the Government School of Design in Shrewsbury. Letter is annotated on back with remarks, presumably from Redgrave.
Boxall tells Redgrave that he is otherwise engaged for a planned meeting tomorrow. He suggests that Friday instead.
Boxall apologizes for missing Redgrave when he called on him at home and Boxall was not there. Boxall invites Redgrave to dinner for "a chop of pheasant which I have brought back with me from the country," and asks for Redgrave's forgiveness.
"My Dear Redgrave, Many thanks for the card. I have been unable to get so far & I fear that I have given you the trouble for nothing. It makes me nervous the more […]. Old […] no end of depredations upon […] kind intentions. Yours […] W. Boxall.
