Inscription

[printed] GROSVENOR HOTEL
CHESTER

[handwritten] July 25. 1896

My dear D. Dobie

I send you my original notes to D Gowrie before he saw me, and his letter after he had seen me - I found in the same envelope Walter Jacobson on a matter I did not mention to you, after consultation between him & Dr Gowrie, a few months since.

I hope you will not think of me till Monday - you are very busy tomorrow - I shall go with him after all to Cathedral for the morning, if I am fairly well.

[overleaf] my deafness increases so much when with three or four together at a meal, that I did not like to trespass on your kindness at luncheon.

But I shall call, I hope, in the afternoon.

I will not go out on Monday till I hear of you

Ever Yr. faithful obliged

H Acland
