Dear Sir

                            With reference to your
letter to me informing me that you
have obtained a situation in the
Railway & Metropolitan Omnibus Coy.
I beg to say that I have handed Mr
a sum of two pounds to enable you
to purchase clothes as you suggest. This
money has been sent to me by Mrs Nichol
with a request that I would appropriate
it for your benefit as I might
consider best. I am glad that it is
available for you just at the moment
when you are apparently able to turn it
to the best account.   It is however necesry
for me to tell you that I know of no
quarter from which further assistance is likely
to be obtained. Please send me a note which
I may communicate to Mrs Nichol         F.W.C.
