My dear Harry,
Here is the 
autograph (on the 
next leaf) with 
the greatest pleasure. 
My principal complaint 
just now is hard 
work. A little 
while ago it was 
gout. Charley 

was (I am glad to 
say) better when 
I last heard of 
Yours Ever 
Vy truly yours 
Wilkie Collins 
July 4th 1871

Harry is probably a family member. The signature requested is still with the letter. So either it was not delivered or was kept intact with the letter.
