Dunraven <1>
Feb 12. 44

My dear Mr Talbot

I have heard that you are likely to come into this County soon, if so I trust you will not pass us by, but give us the pleasure of your company for a few days, we do not know whether Mrs Talbot <2> will accompany you, but if she does, Lady Adare <3> hopes she joins me in saying we shall be most happy if she will come to Dunraven. I go to Town tomorrow, but hope to return by the beginning of next week.

Believe me Yours most truly
Adare
