Ga 2 E 220
Letter from John W. Fitzwilliam, 4 Grosvenor Square, [London] to George Edmund Milnes Monckton-Arundell, 7th Viscount Galway; undated [c.1876-1889]
Sends a small gift [not present] to commemorate the day. Asks how Galway has managed to "square the sun".
Writer is probably Captain William John Fitzwilliam, son of 6th Earl Fitzwilliam. The family lived at 4 Grosvenor Square during this period.
Date: The letter is undated, but presumably must date between 1876 [the year Galway succeeded his father as Viscount Galway] and 1889 [the year that John Fitzwilliam died].
