My dear brother
I have two letters from you to acknowledge: the last one telling me that they want you to stand for Mayor.
I do not gather whether you have consented or not - if you do I wish you all good luck. No doubt one thing which would make you reluctant to accept would be your natural and very proper desire to have a change as soon as I can take up the reins. It is only common sense that you should have some relaxation from the long strain and no doubt your thoughts will turn towards England.
Thanks very much for your energetic action with the military authorities
