H. Stanhope to Kathleen, January 5, [1897]

AlE Or3 C421

Dear Miss O’Reilly


I returned to town yesterday, & found your letter here, dated

2 Dec. Why they never forwarded it to me they cannot explain. I am very much annoyed, & am so sorry.

Yes, I have been ill and doing a cure.  It has set me up enough to offer my services for a ship, and you will see my appointment to a ship in the Mediterranean in a few days time.  She is the “Melita”, & now at Constantinople.  I hope I shall get strong again soon.  I shall be probably leaving by land about the 10th [l8th?], so if you are anywhere near town before that, will you kindly let me know, as I should so much like to see you again.

Very sincerely yours

Harry Stanhope
