Description

Letter to Blanche from Robert Lowe

Inscription

[printed] 11, Downing Street,
Whitehall

[handwriting] April 16 1869

My dear Blanche,

There is a poem on early English History which seems to me to be pretty well versified - so I send it you for the improvement of your mind.

Will you tell Lord Clarke[?] that "under existing circumstances", a phrase which always occurs in every letter from the Treasury, I fear it is very unlikely that I should

[overleaf] get away from the House and as there is a great and hungry crowd I rather look forward to having no dinner at all

- always

Most sincerely

Robert Lane
