Dear Sir,
My brother wishes me to reply to your letter for him, and to thank you for your
statement of affairs. He was anxious to know the particulars. We are very much
obliged to you, and offer our sincere thanks for all your trouble, and very much
regret that any one should cause you annoyance. My brother will write to
Uncle George Farnaby now that he knows how things stand. And we hope that
things will be arranged quickly.
Again, thanking you for the trouble you have taken and for the many acts of
kindness you have shown to Auntie Theakston in her lifetime.

Remaining, Yours Sincerely

and my husbands signatures.

Yours Sincerely,
