My apologies for taking so long to reply to you; things have been extremely busy. However, if your offer to assist in cataloguing the bookshop's worth of materials I've come into still stands, I would be very pleased to have the assistance. Would you please show up at [address] in London to see the collection, and to discuss this further, on perhaps Monday? If that would suit, please let me know.
I wanted to inform you that I've found some shop premises; they're at [address] in London. A pleasant old building, and the Argosy collection has already arrived there. I may have found someone to help me properly catalogue them all, but I had promised you a viewing and a viewing you shall have. I extend the invitation to Miss Henriette and Master Henry on the possible belief that they are as curious (though hopefully not as light-fingered) as their mother, but it need not be accepted if old books are not an interest.
Would you be able to come to the bookshop's new address sometime when it suits your convenience? I've someone I'd like very much to introduce you to.
Between Princess and my acquaintanceship with Mr. Robert Singer, I've been made aware of what you do, or did. A pleasure for a kindred spirit, sir. I realise it may be rude, given our extremely recent meeting, to presume in this way, but I have a favor that your family might be able to assist me with. Is there a member of your family particularly skilled in the knowledge of devil's traps?
