My Dear Haeckel
In the Introduction to your last lectures I see Joseph McCabe talks of your „enfeebled health” and of your being compelled to be a „passive spectator &c”.
I hope you have not been any worse lately and that you || still possess a full measure of health and strength for your years. We hope also that Mrs Haeckel is keeping in good health.
If you would both come here on a visit any time this summer I’ll be delighted to meet you in London or elsewhere and bring you || here. We have lots of room here and we are away from all large towns, so you could spend a month in the fields and woods and hills with profit to your health. Should you be able to undertake the journey.
Our eldest girl has not been very well the || last week or two, but otherwise we are in very good form.
I’ll run you about in a noiseless motor if you can come over !!
With best remembrances to Mrs Haeckel
P.S. This house belongs to the Roman Catholic family of Bute, plenty of sacred pictures and a chapel close by, but shut up at present J.M.
