My Dear Sir

Either the fatique of these wed-
ding parties or too much horse back exer-
cise on the day I last saw you brought
on a slight return of my disease. I feel
however pretty well now and shall
hereafter adhere obstinately to good
regimen until I overcome the
coyness of Madame Health and persuade
her marry me fairly and religiously.
"I ask of heaven no boon beside" -
I send for more of the electuary

Yours with great esteem

R.S. Brooke
