Self help
doing
wonderfully



South Eastern Railway.
London Terminus. S.E.

27 Octr 1860.


( Private )


My Dear Sir ,


I enclose a pass with
pleasure. On returning it to
me address “private” outside ,
as all letters not so marked
are opened.


I have heard from
Mr Cooke , & also seen
him ; he seems up to the
neck in furthering books.





I hope you will have
a prosperous season .


Self Help indeed makes its way
wonderfully. Do you see
the large crop of imitations
it has produced ?


With kind regards to
Mrs Murray , Believe me

[Yours vy] faithfully

S Smiles

J. Murray Esq
