Charles Butler to his brother George

Scope and Content

Written from Johannesburg. 40pp. Refers to James Stuart's wedding and hopes he will enjoy the seven volumes of Gladstone's reminiscences and wonders if he will get the ostrich egg he (Charles) sent by a friend going home. Still troubled about non-receipts of cablegrams. Has to confess that he has lost all his brother's money and Carter's and Cazalet's (£250) not by but indirectly through bad speculation. With envelope.
