0/8/W. 30th April, 1923.

Dear ,

I must congratulate you upon your little poem which I was very glad to see. I am so glad that you have had recognition by having it printed in two papers, and thank you for giving me the opportunity of having it printed for the Society's benefit. Our experience in the past, however, has been rather unfortunate for we have on several occasions had verses written by friends printed and have invariably had the bulk left upon our hands. If, there-fore, we are not able to print what you have sent I hope that you will understand.

Thank you for all your good wishes for the Anniversary; I know that you thoughts will be with us then. I hope that all is well with you.

Yours faithfully,

Mr. J.
Castle Street,

Overwritten in blue: Mr. [Barnes]. As this is supposed to through some light on J. early history it might be put with his C.P. I think. H.B.

J. the first boy.
