University Library, CambridgeMay 13, 1896
Dear Mrs. Lewis,
I think we have reason to congratulate ourselves. For the fragment I took with me represents a piece of the original Hebrew of Ecclesiasticus. It is the first time that such a thing was discovered. Please do not speak yet about the matter till to-morrow. I will come to you to-morrow about 11 p.m. and talk over the matter with you, and how to make it known.
In haste and great excitement
