My dear Colonel Hecker,

Your good letter of Decem. 10th with enclosures as named reached me at Assouan on arrival there New Year's 'eve. As we continued our journey up the river the following noon, I could not reply from Assouan as I would liked to have done.

[[note in pencil]] You were kind in writing so fully about the Free Press sale and in sending copies of the correspondence on the matter. [[/note in pencil]]
