Dr. A. L. Manning 

My Dear Sir. 

      I report that ill health has prevted my visiting any of the Departments since you were here, therefore cannot speak encouragingly of your chances for a place in any of them.  I regret to learn that you, like myself, have been sick but truth you will will soon be well. 

Very truly Yrs & c 
Tho. H. Hicks
