Scope and content

Thanking Bishop Clark for the copies of correspondence with the Knights of Malta about their venture in Friday Market.
Reflecting on discontent with the Knights for not keeping Bishop Clark informed of their activities. They "... live in a different world from the rest of us poor mortals."
Sorry to note that Bishop Clark was ill and could not attend Mary's funeral; Bishop McGuiness was almost late himself after his windscreen was shattered by a pheasant from the Royal Estate.
Manuscript annotation: "a/d personally 9/11/83"
