I send you a note of introduction to Mr. Ionides from my wife. We have been talking the matter over since you left, & think it will make it easier for you if you would enclose this in a note from [p. 2] yourself to Mr. Ionides tomorrow asking for an appointment. On second thoughts though, so as not to lose time, you had better say that you will call on him at a certain hour on Monday.

[p. 3] P. S.
Sunday night 21st
Since writing yesterday Mrs Manuel called here again this afternoon to say that if you would call tomorrow afternoon (Monday) at 3 o'clock on Mr H. W. Handcock, at Westminster Chambers, 5 Victoria St., she had heard of an opening there. Mr. Hancock [p. 4] will expect you then -
Say that you come on Mrs. Manuel's introduction. She thinks it will be better for you to see what you can do through Mr. Handcock first - If you should not succeed with him in obtaining an appointment there it will still be open to you to see Mr. Ionides another day. Mrs. Manuel has taken much interest, so I hope you will take her advice -
W. M. W.
Please forward at once
c/o Mrs. Singleton.

There are several firms of civil engineers at No. 5, Victoria Street. Since Hanson became an engineer, Handcock is likely to have been connected to one of them.
