In this letter, Ward makes plans to meet someone at a convenient time, in full: "Dear Sir, I intended calling upon you some time ago, but I had to go out of town. I trust tomorrow afternoon about 3pm will be a convenient hour to you as I shall be down town. I can call upon you at that time. I remain, Yours Faithfully, Herbert Ward." Partial tears along the fold; otherwise very good condition.

Hello from England. I received the book today, and just wanted you to know that I'm really happy with it -- its condition is really amazing, and a lot better than I had hoped. It also happens to be a really excellent book, which helps. I also wanted to say thanks for the great packaging: it's surprisingly often that companies don't pack their books properly and they end up getting damaged during the shipping process! Kind regards, - Hannah W.
