I think I then promised to send you a book, but my trip lasted so much longer than I thought it would, I fear your address may be changed. Please inform me as to this.My trip to N[ew] Z[ealand] was delightful in both islands, and lasted about 2 mos. Hoping to hear from you ere long, I am, with thanks and best wishes.Faithfully yours,J.
