Both letters in good condition, on lightly-aged paper. Each in its envelope, addressed to Mrs Strutt at 12 Somers Place, Hyde Park. Letter One: 1p., 12mo. He apologies in florid style about a clash in dinner engagements. 'I made a desperate attempt to avoid a dinner-party tonight with the Wimbornes and was told that I should out the entire numbers, so that apparently about thirty people would be made homeless by my selfishness.' He nevertheless undertakes to attempt 'to come rather late tonight to your party'. Letter Two: 1p., 4to. He begins: 'Alas! Alas! we cannot either of us come on Tuesday. Do please try once again. I could not like Miss Warrender more, and should love to meet her again. Do try and arrange it.' He sympathises with her indisposition: 'I get the same feeling myself and it is the bane of my life. Today I am half insane with proof correcting.' Mrs Strutt was a leading member of London Roman Catholic high society. N° de ref. de la librería 14457
