22nd November, 1906

Dear Mrs. Hull,

I am extremely obliged to you for your kind note, and for sending me the enclosed letter, which is certainly most gratifying. I remember the case well, and you may like to use the particulars, as being in many respects interesting, and typical of many other cases received by the Society. Strange to say, on Sunday morning next I am preaching on behalf of the cause at Clapham Parish Church, which is practically within a stone's throw of the very spot where S. as a boy swept his crossing. As a matter of fact, he was the first boy, and the second case, received by the Society, his case having been accepted as far back as February, 1882.

Believe me,
Yours very truly,

On further thought I have ventured to retain [] letter for the present I should like [?]
