My dear Willie -
I have been away - and on my return have just received Thomson who called this evening to settle the rest of his account - so I enclose at once [p. 2] the £100. as you and I have arranged -
I do hope you are not going to be kept here in this horrid weather - Why not go - and settle - as we always do by and bye! -
and with best wishes
