Description

Letter from Charles Spurgeon to Revd. L.W. Bacon, declining a request for a meeting due to illness.

Inscription

Westwood
Beulah Hill
Upper Norwood
1888 June 27

Dear Sir,

I am so unwill that I am anxious to avoid all useless interviews. I am not open to any offer for literary work, nor prepared to write anything upon the subject mentioned. I shd be sorry for you to come so far in vain. Had I been in health I wd have seen you, but nothing could have come of it. As it is, I am extremely

[overleaf] feeble; & I am glad to escape public & private engagements.

Yours very truly

C.H. Spurgeon
