Scope and content

9 [?] St James Sq. - Condolences on the death of Lady Houghton; ventures to write a note of recommendation for a young man who is 'the son of M. and Mad. Favre who saw Lady Houghton at Geneva...' as Houghton may 'like to be kind to people who took such a friendship for her on so short an acquaintance'; he can easily write that he is out of town if it is an inconvenience.
