Handwritten letter, on 8, South Bolton Gardens headed paper in which Orpen informs Mrs St George that yesterday he 'saw Murray off to Canada'. He also mentions that Mr. Bishop is coming, 'Poppy's picture is getting on fairly well and 'Lord Leicester is not going to sit until I come back from Ireland next time'.
