My dear Sir,


Your … of the 13 … I duly received with enclosed copy of address.


In my private capacity without mention of the name of my firm (that is my partner’s name) I shall be willing to make one of you deputation to present this address.


The correspondence you mention I shall be happy to look over and if you will send me a post card giving a time I shall send a clerk for it, in case it might be lost in parcel delivery.


I fear I may not be able to give it much time nor to give ideas of any value to you but I should like to see the correspondence and would return it promptly.


I have to go to France in a couple of weeks time and then to Algiers and will be away a couple of weeks probably.


I return to Kaffraria in March with my family.


I shall be there for some months perhaps for some years, but in King W Town where I … I will always be at your service for any information that I can give you …


Soon after I reach the Colony I shall probably visit many of my old friends in Kaferlands.


Believe me dear Sir

Yours faithfully

Julius … Jameson
