My dear James
I am off to the country in a hurry, but lest you might think I
forget you, will write you an apology for a letter for the present. It is seldom we have rain here, but it is raining today. Max O'Rell is
here; Foli has been with the remains of his top & bottom, and the
whole of his middle Registers. I send you some articles on Imperial
Federation that may interest. I am sure they are more logical and
complete than any single essay yet published. You are a sportsman
still. Well, so am I, hypertrophy of the heart etc., notwithstanding.
I have "Modesty" again, a little 15 hands fly-away, who carried me
through the two last hunts, though only a week in stable. She often
flies a 4 foot post & rail fence from the metal of the Road, & I ride
her without whip or spur. Cadger is as good as ever.
I hope Mrs. G is by this time better. You must give her for me
the respects of a brother. By this time you must regret that you did
not put an end to bachelorhood earlier. It is a dull, starved life,
except for boosers etc. I saw Eugene last week. He is getting on
comfortably, and appears to be liked. For a town practice he
would want high string energy here at first, and Eugene prefers to
take the world at a reasonable pace. If he has not written to you, it
may be that he would prefer to stand on one leg for an hour, than
write a letter.
You will, I know, excuse me today. Let me know how the new
work is getting on.

Your affectionate Brother
P. McM. Glynn
