Barcelona, April 1863
Dear Madame Edwards,
I must say it was a shock to see the name of Monsieur Beauchamp again. If you are apprentice to him I send you my most sincere sympathies. You must be quiet an accomplished seamstress for him to keep you so close. With regards to the key, I fear you have me at a disadvantage. You say you found it in a sewing basket with name and address attached? I know of no such key, but I have been out of M. Beauchamps' employ for quite some time now. If you have further information regarding it, I would be most eager to hear of it.
P.S. I am currently in Spain working on a new project. The bullfights are most thrilling and their costumes even more so. I will return to Scotland late next month if you have further news.
