Belloc writes to his correspondent:

"My Dear Sir,

I am afraid there has been a bad contretemps about the autograph Extract you were kind enough to ask me to write for the Album to be presented to Lord [Douglas] Haig. I find ... that you wrote both in March and in April - while I was in America (I only just returned late this month).
