2 Lindsey Houses-
Dear Howell -
Your card though dated the 26th. has only just been delivered here that is at 7. o'clock this even[in]g! So you must have forgotten to post it yesterday -
I enclose the Japanese Poem. I have always had it in my pocket book ready to look at and read - so that it is perhaps very much used - I wish you would have some copies printed
