      Revd Allessandra Cavazzi,

      Dear Sir,

      Although your letter was somehow delayed and followed me to various places in my tour, I was thankful to receive it and insert your testimonial along with the others.  I send you two copies and pray you to correct any errors you see in your paragraph and send me the correction to my home address, Thorncroft, Leicester, England.

      I am

      Yours very truly

      Thomas Cook.
