 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 21
Call Number: MSS 22

Scope and Contents

"Dear Redgrave, I have time to reply a line at once. Of course whatever you determine on I shall feel satisfied about, & by no means regret the countenance of the extra [….] as it will be more substantial, so you may as well proceed at once with the business - the extra 17£ can't be helped. I have received 3 other letters this morning. Sulivan and [...] all as kind as [...]. We are still here and shall remain I think till Tuesday morning. When we shall visit Castle Howard, then to Leeds for a day or two - and then straight to Town whence I think of visiting Ashford before settling down. This is the most beautiful scenery I have seen and picturesque, a quiet delightful village, civil people and good sketching & Charlotte and I are as contented & happy as we well can be - get married old boy--as soon as you can. Ever Yours, C.W. Cope." [Faint pencil sketch on back of letter of a man and woman embracing]
