“I hope that by now you are nearly fully recovered from your illness, & that in consequence of your operation you will be in better health than before.
My wife & I both send you our warmest regards & all the very best wishes.
We are enjoying the good weather in Forte dei Marmi, & we are sorry you are not here as well.
But this year we are returning to England earlier than usual, (that is, at the end of this month on August 30th) & so I shall then be able to see the portfolios which you have sent to the Curwen Press… I am of course very interested to see them, & how they look now finished.
Please get your assistant to write to me to tell me the latest news about your health…”
