Letter from Knox, Included Alongside a Copy of 'Rasselas'

Author(s): Knox, Grace

Text

My dear Sir

I send you a Copy of
Raſselas as a small token of remembrance.
I ought to have given
it before parting with you but
as taking farewell of my friend
is always painful and confusing to
me it quite escaped me till after
you were gone. It is a very
trifling gift but I hope you will
regard teh motive which dictates
it and not the mere value.
Again I bed you adieu
and believe me my dear Sir you
carry ith you Mr. H's and my
most ardent wishes for your welfare
and happineſs.

Grace Knox
