To Alberta Sturges
14 GREYCOAT GARDENS,
WESTMINSTER, LONDON S.W.,
3rd Dec., 1896.
Herewith I enclose a letter of Mabel to Joe Joe to you. I have enjoyed the news* in it very much and so I am sure you will.Â
I am to start from here for India on the 16th and to take the steamer at Naples. I will, therefore, be in Italy for some days and in Rome for three or four days. I will be very happy to look in to say good-bye to you.
Capt. and Mrs. Sevier from England are going to India with me, and they will be with me in Italy of course. You saw them last summer.
I intend to return to the U.S. and to Europe thence in about a year.ÂÂ
With all love and blessings,
* The news was that Mabel MacLeod, her mother's cousin, was going to be married
- Alberta Sturges was in Rome at the time.

DEAR MISS NOBLEÂ
Many thanks for sending the kind present from Mr. Beatty. I have written to him acknowledging his beautiful gift.
As for you, my dear, noble, kind friend, I only would say this â we Indians lack in many things, but there is none on earth to beat us in gratefulness. I remain,
Ever yours gratefully,
