Scope and Contents

Four undated letters from Spencer to "Madame Dickinson aux Dames Angloises, Anvers"; All written with affection, some in verse; one signed "adieu ma tres cher amie adieu." Spencer reports his attempts to get "memorandum" of Howard's, after his death; he does have picture of Aloysius procured before Howard's sickness and death. He asks CJ not to tell of the picture taken. Spencer has been to Howard's chamber, more bare than a Carmelite cell-- nothing there to send, besides a small picture of St. Stanislaus (and present vice-Superior, Ellerher, challenged this.) Howard will have a magnificent gravestone and Latin inscription. Spencer asks CJ to take care of "your precious health" and pray for one who is "convinced of your real friendship (and your mother's)."
