[fragment of a letter]

We have been driving to the Baths of Caracalle, which is one of the largest finest ruins I ever saw close to it we saw the lately discovered house of Asinius Pollio which was covered over with an immense mass of earth when the baths of Caracalla were built. Weather very fine & cool.

Your affte
Henry
