2pp., 12mo. Bifolium. In very good condition, lightly aged. Had he known that Hughes's wedding was 'coming off so soon' he would have been 'in time with a little gift'. As it is, he asks him to choose for himself, 'with the aid of your wife': 'Are you and she sick of the Oxford Books of Verse? Is Shakspeare's England too weighty (avoirdupois) for war-time establishments? Or are there any obvious of books which no gentleman's library should be without, such as Dickens or Thackeray?' He is happy that he noticed the announcement in The Times: 'It was a great pleasure to be present at such a suitable wedding; and by suitable I am impertinent enough to refer not merely to the simplicity of the whole ceremony, but to your wife'. He hopes to 'renew our connection of 1913-1914 - how long ago it seems!' In a postscript he invites the couple to lunch with him in London. The Times announced the marriage of 'Lieutenant George Ravensworth Hughes, Dorset Regiment, second son of Professor T. McKenny Hughes, of Cambridge, and Margaret, eldest daughter of Judge Graham, K.C., of Ballewan, Stirlingshire'. From the McKenny Hughes papers. N° de ref. de la librería 16803
