He adds: "It has not been our fortune to meet for several years - do not think on that account I forget the pleasant days I have spent in your rooms & society when I was a poor undergraduate under your Decanal jurisdiction - alumnus tuus - It was only last week that one of our summer excursions was brought to my mind, when I was riding in Blenheim park - you may have forgotten our expedition to Blenheim you auriga [chauffeur] and I beside you - Perhaps some white day may still occur - when we may renew some such agreable expedition, unless indeed humble joys like them are beneath the attention of an accomplished traveller. | A dios (is this portuguese?) and believe me [...] | John H. Newman."
