Dear Mr Talbot
I have written to Mr J. Hall by Constance’s <3> desire to ask if he has any Protegé in the shape of any an intelligent Youth whom he could recommend to you unluckily he is not in Town at present & as we set out tomorrow, I fear I shall not get his answer [illegible deletion] before we go – but he is aware of our Movements & has also your address in Sackville St. <4>
Pls believe me Yours very truly
