I read a sentence from a juvenile novel set in Victorian England:

'If you hear anything, write to me care of Mr. Temple, of Lincold Inn."

I feel there is omission in this sentence; is it '... write to me with the care of Mr. Temple...'?

No, it's basically correct:

----
in care of into the temporary possession of an addressee who will ensure that the item will be delivered to the intended recipient

- sent the letter to her in care of her parents

Hello Marius,

The source sentence goes without 'in', is that correct? (The Ruby In The Smoke, Phillip Pullman)
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
That's correct too, a shortened form.
Thank you very much.
Yes.

Here's an example of how C/O would be used on an envelope:

Ms. Sponge Barb C/O Mr. Sponge Bob 123 Green Street Pasadena, CA ___ USA

(Ms. Sponge Barb is visting Mr. Sponge Bob long enough to want her mail to be delivered there.)

Thanks Nef.
C/O Mr. Sponge Bob

funny thing, C/O doesn't show in Nef's message, except when I quote it.
Thank, Marius. Here's what I should have written:

Yes.
