My Dear Irving,—I consider your plan of taking a few young gentlemen on a tour to America and Europe an excellent one. It would greatly benefit them to see the world. I think, indeed I am sure, they could not have a better guide and companion than yourself. I hope you will succeed. I will write my nephew in New South Wales to call upon you. Of course you can refer page 17 to me if it will help on your plans. As already said, I am sure you will be an excellent mentor to anyone committed to your charge. Wishing you success and all the compliments of the season, believe me, yours sincerely,
M. M Irving,Esq., Sydney.
