Recipient: George Aldridge George

                           Monday. Aug. 4.

Dear Dr. George,
           By some means
I have got a sore throat & chest;
which makes me think it advisable
to stay indoors to-day, & postpone our
walk till another occasion. I am
much disappointed at this - but
must put up with it.
                                  yours truly
                                             T. Hardy
