Description'Dear Sir,
In answer to your note to Dr Foster, I may at once inform you that the intimation of Dr Armstrong's nomination as an Almoner of Christ's Hospital was sent to the Clerk to the Almoners on the same day as we received from him the intimation of your resignation. Had you not better ask him to divert the stream of documents in Dr Armstrong's direction?
I am, yours truly,
