My dear George,

                    Many, very
many thanks for your very
tasteful and splendid present
which I found on my
table last night when I
came home.

I am sorry to hear that
you have been ailing, and
I hope that you are now
well – If you should
at any time require my
aid, either alone or in
consultation with our
friend Dr. Williams, be-
lieve me that I shall
always be most ready to
afford it, either for your-
self or for any of your
family, with those feelings
which a now somewhat
old friendship should inspire.

     I remain, My Dear
George, with sincere regards,

         Very truly yours

         James Copland
