A letter from Raffles to the Duchess of Somerset

Rocks and Seas to contend with- but
another Element must rise against
us- Earth Air Fire & Water all
Combined to oppose our progress- but
I will not despair.

I have the honor to remain
Most sincerely

T. S. Raffles

Pray excuse the brevity of this- In truth
it is with the utmost difficulty I hold
the Pen.
