Dear Mr. Tuckeman

We are such

a large party in this visit to

Florence and having no

particular will of my own

afraid I am pledged to follow

others every afternoon while

here. You as a man of

family will understand how

good natured husbands are



Should I however


(left side)

discover a break in the family

arrangement I will at once

avail myself of it to renew

our acquaintance which was

begun with Tuck country on

your part in 1859 at Athens

I commend myself to Mrs.

Tuckerman oblige you to

believe me.

Faithfully Yours,

Henry M. Stanley
