Undoubtedly your Braintree sojourn would have been a path to paradise had you lain on your back and read them. Your piece about the Forest of Butley & then the New E – Anglian Magazine reminded me that I MUST get the book about Acton Jennings &c as you’ll see by enclosed piece of paper (one of many midnight notes that I make in bed every d____d night & forget them) I had memorised the purchase of your masterpieces. * Brompton Mixture.  Just the thing for you. The true stuff can be made for you by Sawyers – old fashioned Chemists on a corner near The Swan at Southwold. Others will try it – But all vary. An excuse for you & I to go to Southwold.
