Letter: from [Spencer?] Walpole (1806-1898) to 'Faithfull'

Scope and Content

My dear Faithfull, I was very sorry to see in the papers an announcement of your retirement & still more sorry to see the reason given for it. I hope, however, that you are really not giving in, but that you are only taking advantage of some temporary illness to escape from the drudgery of office life. How time passes & how [scatter] we. Yours very Sincerely S Walpole. Paper has 'Government House Isle of Man' printed on it in black ink.
