110. Rue du Bac - Paris -

My dear McColl -

Mr Thomson[3] passed through town here the other day & I told him to send you one of the Portfolios[4] -

He said that he had already arranged to do so - Wherefore thats all right - -

You will readily understand that my joy is in the motto - the extract from the Attorney General's[5] speech - If you [p. 2] find occasion to say any thing at all, let that one little point be remembered - as to the rest you have superbly exhausted the subject! -

How are you? and how is the dreary town you live in?

With kindest regards -
Always sincerely
