Letter from Archibald Campbell to Brian Houghton Hodgson to write that he had sent George Campbell's letter to the Foreign Office urging action at Pekin. He has no other copy. Campbell writes that he has asked George Campbell to let him know the response he gets. George has lent Archibald his recent work about the Railway which Campbell is finding intensely interesting and it appears that it will happen now that Ball is at his feet. If so it will make some of Campbell's existence at Darjeeling well requited. Hooker and his wife have asked Campbell to join them at Beadford but Campbell hasn't the strength. Handwritten, 1 piece, 4 sides with accompanying envelope bearing Hodgson's annotations. Dated 31 August 1873.
