Dear Sir
My Committee wish me to extend to you their Sympathy in your sickness which made it impossible for your attendance at the Society's Show on Wednesday last and they hope that you will soon recover and have the best of Good Health

They also wished me to forward to you a Marked Catalogue of the Events for your Perusal. The weather was not all that we could wish for in the morning but the day improved later on and made a fine day and we had a very good Company in the afternoon. We had however to do the Best we could with the Luncheon & Speeches Mr E. Cherry Presided in your place as you will see in the Local Report of the Press

However I hope we shall be more fortunate next time

I remain yours Faithfully W. T. Raw
