My Dear Irving,—In one way I am sorry to hear of your trip to England, as I hoped to have had the pleasure of seeing you here again. I trust it will be a pleasant trip to you, and I hope remunerative, although the sum you mention seems very small to me for such a splendid trip, combined with your care and instructive and interesting companionship. You are quite welcome to use my name in any way you like, or to refer anyone to me, as I formed a very high opinion of you, and consider that the parents will be lucky who can give their sons such a trip under your care. With very kind regards, I am, my dear Irving, yours very faithfully,
Eustace H. L. Pratt, M.D., &c.
