Small two page handwritten letter, headed Blackheath, from Felix to W. Smithson, Secretary of Kent C.C.C. dated Saturday 9th 1849. 'Dear Sir, I shall have much pleasure in playing in the Gentleman's match at Lord's on Monday July 2nd and the return match at Canterbury in the August week commencing the 20th. Will you oblige me by letting me know if you wish me to play in the Kent v England at Lord's and at Canterbury- as soon as you can- as if not I have the opportunity of accepting other invitations which I ought to answer soon. Pray remember me to all friends- and to the ladies my profound devotions and...believe me as ever Yours sincerely N. Felix'. Nicely signed by Felix. A rare letter
