Dear Sir

          I am sorry to say that
your pen and mine for a long time
did not converse with each other.
I have wrritten to you since I have
received that book and the tracks
and the photo-graphs from you
and I think twice. I am now
dewelling in Suffolk in the
village Kessingland by name
about 900 or more people in the
village. on the north of this village
there is a place called Lowestoft -
the most easterly p^oint of England
many people come to bathe here
on account of the fine weather
But most of the people come in
the summer season.

I am now staying with Revd W. S
who is taking the s^uprintend[-]
of the East African mission
and probably we shall go together
after a month or so. His wife is
also going with him,   to Mom[-]
near Zanzibar, were the
mission stations is to be started.
My kind regards to all in
your house, and I will add
that you will inform one
in answering this letter.

      The adress of your letter
    should be ----
Mr Jacob Wainwright
c/o Revd W. S Price
