H'ry to Wm, May 24, 1903. Age: 60

H'ry has little luck with pet dogs:

"I have just acquired by purchase a very beautiful and valuable little Dachshund pup of the 'red' species, who has been promising to be the joy of my life up to a few hours since -- when he began to develop a mysterious and increasing tumification of one side of his face, about which I must immediately have advice.  The things my dogs have, and the worries I have in consequence!  I already see this one settled beneath monumental alabaster in the little cemetery in the angle of my garden, where he will make the fifth."
