Dated from the sequence of letters in Kennedy's letterbooks (although this is not completely reliable) and also by the almanac and the date of Kennedy's visit to Paris (he left Paris for London on 4 July 1892, which was a Monday).

The letter is written in purple ink on squared paper, at right angles to the printed address.
