Description
Letter written in pink ink, with '33' written in scroll-like oranamental writing in the top right corner [probably referring to Banting's house number]. John Banting states, 'horrible things have been happening to me', he asks if he can use Humphrey Spencer's cottage for a weekend with 'Zena' [?Zena Douglas]. He also offers Humphrey Spencer assistance in dressing for his wedding, help to 'tank' him up before hand, and to provide an 'anti-sweat' remedy.
