My Dear Sir,

A severe illness has prevented me answering your letter earlier - I am soon in the North for a few days for a change of air -

It would afford me great pleasure to assist you in your desire to obtain employment in our Company. But when I tell you there are about 40 young men now working for some 20 or so in our London office for the chance of a vacancy occurring in any of our home or foreign establishments

Keep me advised of your movements so that if an opportunity offers in which I can give you a lift I may know where to find you

The patronage rests with the Directors but I may have it in my power some day to assist you - either in our own Compy. or some other - I have been applied to at times for persons suitable to fill certain positions - wishing you health and success in accomplishing your object -

Believe me

Yours very Truly

M Ingledew (or Engledeu?)
