'I think the enclosed is worth your notice. On making a search, there is no "enclosure". But the International Express Train Service Co, who have an office in Cockspur St, issue a month's guide for the information of travellers which is circulated [two illegible words]. It contains a comparative table of the prices and [illegible, underlined, possibly "routes"] of Baedecker's and Murray's Guides, much to your disadvantage & certainly incorrect.'
