William Morris & Co. Tiles from Textiles: Lodden

Excuse me, but you omitted the ceremony of signing the cheque; a thing I have often done myself: I reinclose it, so please sign it & send it back to us; if you don't think better of it. Yours very truly, ~William Morris, 4 January 1889, Merton Abbey, Surry. Letter to John Carruthers
