Description

Letter from John Bright.

Inscription

Rochester
5.21.84.

Dear Friend.

I fear I can to of no service to Mrs. Herbert - I have recently failed in an application made to the Colonial office, & I am not writing just now to make any other attempt.

I am sorry to have to say this - but I should be glad to be of service to any friend of yours.

When I return to town, I will speak to Mr. Chamberlain on the subject of your letter.

I am very sincerely yours

John Bright

Geo [indec] Esq
Birmingham
