8 May. 1890
Dear Mr. Lighthall,
By all means; I shall be delighted to have you, and to make you as comfortable as we can. Please let me know when you will be here; I mean to say, by what train.
The bad weather seems to be breaking this morning; at last we have a clear sky and perhaps by the time you come summer will have got a fair footing.
Remember me please to Mr. & Mrs. Lighthall1 and your brother & sister.
Yours very sincerely,
