A photostat of both sides of a letter, side-by-side. On the right, a letterhead in Gothic font reads 'Gad's Hill Place, Higham by Rochester, Kent'. This is followed by a date (the month in shorthand) and 22 lines of shorthand arranged in six paragraphs. On the left is an inscription in longhand: 'Copy. Letter to S. A. Chappell. Boston. Friday 22nd November 1867.'
