You asked me to get a doll for you in Icelandic Costume.

I have the doll, or if you prefere [sic] a full size old costume complete, you can take which you like. I shall be here for some little time, but should like to know when you would be likely to come here & look at the Costumes, as I go home Saturdays till Tuesdays, as a rule, and sometimes, am not here all day.

I remain,
Yours faithfully,
Sigridr  E. Magnusson

To General Pitt Rivers

Pitt-Rivers seems to have acquired neither the doll nor the full sized costume according to the catalogue of the second collection.
