My dear Mother,
You can see by the thumbing that I write this from a Restaurant.
James left for Ireland by the morning train, so I am comparatively
alone at present—I say comparatively, as there are a few restaurants
which I used to frequent in which I am pretty well known still. The
ship sails on Thursday, but does not leave England until Saturday, as
it calls at Plymouth on that day. I need not say that I cannot hope to
have the same kindness abroad that I always met with at home, but
anything much less would be sufficient to make a fellow happy. I
brought James to two Public debating Rooms where as usual I spoke
—I used to be a lion there and from the laudations and hopes of the
audience I ought to make a fortune if I get a start. There is a French
fellow waiting for the pen and ink, so for the present I must say good
bye—but will write on tomorrow or often.

Your affectionate son,
P. McM. Glyun
