May to David Beckenham 16.7.18 Tuesday
My dear David,
Just a line to say Mrs Taylor has come into the Office with Read & Brigstock’s reply about your first share certificate. They write:-
“In reply to your letter received this morning we are holding the certificate for the 15 Malayalam Shares purchased on account of your son. Will you kindly let us know if you wish us to forward the same to you?”
To which we have replied Yes.
When you were taken prisoner Mrs Taylor put this matter into your cousin’s hands, obtaining fro me copies of all you had written about the shares. She has vowed never to ask him anything again!
Fearfully busy, but all alright. Goodbye.
