My Dear Mr Murray


Madame Hocédé
's fee is £120 per
annum — she says
that Music Masters
charge from ten to
twenty francs an
hour — German
Masters generally
five — what washing
may come to
I dont know





but I shall get
more accurate
information by &
bye.


Sir Rodericks'
name may go out
of the Dedication
He liked it himself
but I shall explain
and he will not
object. You had
better expunge
it & send it to
Press. I send
the last sheet


1865. 9 June
D Livingstone

all correct, through
Oswell to Press.


I am going to pay
a promised visit
to some friends
at Dr Daubeny's
Oxford next
week & will call
either going or
coming


Could you recal
a note book
lent for the
Rovuma wood
cut & leave it
for me where





I could get it? I need it
for returning to that
River.

I am &c

David Livingstone


Do you know if there
is any truth in the
reported resignation
of Sir Bartle Frere
in the Times. His
departure would
be a grievous loss
to me in Bombay.
