2 Richmond Terrace
Whitehall S.W.
10th May 1898

Mr dear Signor
Your letter came opportunely for Mr Rhodes was lunching with us that day. I told him of your wish and he was very pleased and flattered - but he said he was leaving for S.Africa on the 21st. I insisted that he should go to you on the 17th. He laughed at my stern insistence and finally it was settled that he should go to Little Holland House on Tuesday
