Mrs Harriet Grote to Mrs Hare

Scope and Content

Asking her if she would do her the service of introducing the Col.Strachey and his lady, her nephew Frederick Chaloner Lewin, a Lieut in the 85th regiment Light Infantry, now departing to join his corps in Upper India. She is sure that if Mrs Hare (who was a daughter of Edward Strachey, a cousin of Col. Strachey) would hand on the information to her distinguished relations in India and if they would permit him to enter the circle of their society, it would certainly prove of real advantage to him. Sent from Savile Row.
