3pp., 16mo. Bifolium on grey paper. In fair condition, lightly aged, with slight glue staining at margin of second leaf. The letter begins: 'Dear Miss Anderson, | I did not write – though I conclude you have long been home – but you are always busy - & so am I.' She will not 'have finished her book' for another two weeks, when she will be 'free to think of other things'. Then she would 'much like to have a serious talk' with her 'about the play'. She asks to be informed when Anderson will be in London, failing which she 'would not mind to run down to Tunbridge Wells – if it could be done in a few hours – & your house is not very far from the Station'. She ends with 'every good New Year's wish for your health, happiness, & worldly prosperity'.
