Letter from T. Hanbury [Thomas Hanbury] to Miss Casey [Olive Comerford Casey]

Scope and Content

Written from La Mortola, Ventimiglia, Italy. Manuscript

He ought to have written to her from London to say how glad he is that the book's printing is progressing well; he hopes that the French printers do not make too many mistakes; he arrived two days ago with Mrs Hanbury [Katharine Hanbury, Thomas Hanbury's wife] and Hilda [Hilda Hanbury, Thomas and Katharine Hanbury's daughter] after a comfortable 30 hour journey; they have had a lot of rain in the past week, so the garden and hillsides are refreshed, but it would have been better a month earlier; he asks her to send him a postcard to say whether the printing will be finished in a few days; he hopes that her father is better, and sends him a pamphlet on his work in La Mortola improving education for the 'peasants', showing the gratitude of the Municipality of Ventimiglia
