Scope and content

Upper Mall, Lahore (on headed paper for Punjab Club, Lahore; Punjab Club crossed out). - Was very glad to get Trevelyan's letter and hear there was a chance of seeing him here. They hope he will give them 'the honour' of hosting him when he is in Lahore. Knows it might not suit him to 'separate from [Goldsworthy Lowes] Dickinson: unfortunately [Malcolm] Darling lives about three miles away, and they 'do not run to a motor'. But he and his wife will be very glad if Trevelyan can manage to stay with them for all or part of his time: 'Jos Sedley (as you were good enough to call me last time I met you [a reference to Thackeray's Vanity Fair]) will do all he can to show you whatever you think worthy of your notice in Lahore.

Asks Trevelyan jokingly if he is 'an agent of the Public Services Commission or of Mr Montagu [Under-Secretary of State for India]'; he will be welcome 'in any guise', and 'will be able to instruct us 'poor Indians in the up to day methods of the West'.

Trevelyan should send a wire from Bombay if he can stay with them and Stow will meet him on arrival, as their house is 'a new one and not known to all the cab drivers'.
