8vo: 1 p. 14 lines of text. On aged and spotted paper, laid down on a piece of card, and with the head of the letter (not affecting the text but causing the loss of the top half of the letterhead) worn away. Originally a 2-page 12mo bifolium, but with the text from the second page laid down below the first. The subject of the letter appears to be the simmering controversy surrounding a 'Fracas' or 'Scene in the House', reported in The Times throughout August 1893, being an altercation involving the two Members of Parliament, Logan and Hayes-Fisher, both of whom claimed to be the injured party. Burns reproduces a letter which he says he is sending to the press 'in reply to one you send me but which I found subsequently you had published'. He refers to a statement 'attributed to me and referred to by you', which he says is 'due to a misapprehension of some chaffing remarks of mine in the Lobby of Friday last. | I regret to say that I did not see you shaken like a dog and I am sorry to say that I did not witness the pulling of your ear'.
