Scope and content

Reports that Mrs Fay won't even come to Carlton Gardens; that Paddock 'insists that she is now an "Entertainer" and must not appear as a medium.' Describes this 'duplicity' as 'degrading and humiliating', and reports that he told the Colonel his opinion, 'which he received...with Tradesmanlike Dignity.' Announces that [Basil] Champneys is to come up to Cambridge on Thursday until Saturday. Asks Myers to tell his bedmaker to get a room for him. States that Mrs Jen[ ] 'is shilly-shallying', and may get him into difficulties about his visits. Asks if he may, without being rude, move his visit to him [Myers] about between 15 August and 8 September.
