Scope and Contents

"March 9 '76. My dear Lewis, I will be with you on Sunday somewhere about 3 P.M.- and as it will give me more time with you I will stay the night, as I suppose I can get away pretty early in the morning. - I sent your letter to my wife, who is at Hastings; she was charmed with the hopeful tone of it and desired me to give you her love. - I am up and over my head in letters as I have no wife here to carry off the press of them as usual. Ever yours, T. Woolner." Marginalia: "I saw [William] Boxall last night: - he is very feeble I fear.-" William Boxall would die on 6 December 1876.
