Call Number: MSS 22

Scope and Contents

"My Dear Redgrave, the enclosed letter which I addressed to you […] has been returned to me 'not known' - as if you had not made your mark in every foot of this[?] domain[?]. I will send it to your private address, and the post-office authorities cannot fail to know that the letter is if no importance further that it clears me of having expected more than was permitted. - Bother! There are two or three flies having a game of hunting the hair on the top of my [...] bald pate, so abruptly conclude that seven as you know. Yours truly. John P. Knight."
