My dr Henry

As I did not think I should be out of Church time enough to write I told Louisa<1> to write for me – I do not mean that our going wd depend on Seymers,<2> as even if they could have come, you would probably have preferred having us separately, but some time a balk of this sort, in a party we had planned changes the whole scheme, & after all you being close to London – Let me therefore hear – It is very kind of you to want us – Mr F<3> will not stir from home & Charlotte<4> is at Carclew<5> – Harriot & Mr M.<6> wd come to March out of Derbyshire & I suppose they wd not leave here on arrival of the party, as it wd be only Louisa & I at any rate –

H. Fox Talbot Esqre
