Hartham Park <1>
My dear Talbot,
Having accidentally heard that it was intended that Admiral Fielding <2> was to be buried at Lacock tomorrow, I write to enquire whether you would like any Carriage to attend the funeral; or whether I can in any way testify my sincere sympathy & respect on this melancholy occasion.
With kindest regards to any of your family, who may be with you, believe me
Yours most truly,
H. H. Joy
