Rev George Butler to his son George

Scope and Content

Written from Hotel des Capucins, Amalfi. Great disappointment of George being laid up with influenza in England instead of coming out to them; but if he gets well quickly they may still go to Taormina together. He reports: 'I have made good progress during the last few days and sleep better at night.' Col. Chambers of the Royal Engineers who has been all about the world should be here when George comes. With envelope.
