Dear Sir

Mr Atwood has placed in my hands your letter of the 30th June; I shall be happy to have an interview with you any day most convenient to yourself, if you are not likely to be soon passing through Cheltenham, and it would suit your convenience to meet at Swindon I should be happy to arrange a meeting with you there; for I think that much more may be done in a few minutes conversation than by letter.

I remain yours truly
Barnett Smith
