Dear Mr Talbot
We are likely to stay with our friends the Miss Wards <1> about 10 days longer & shall be very glad to see you if you pay your little annual visit to Cowes before we go – but not being in a house of our own we shall not of course have the pleasure of seeing as much of you as we otherwise could. Henry <2> is just leaving us for Oxford as he finds the Commemoration is particularly early this year & he must stay there 3 weeks before he can take his Masters degree – I am glad to have so good an account both of Lady Theresa & of Harriot Mundy <3> – I should have feared the latter was quite unequal to the fatigues of a Birthday
Yours very truly
Harriet Ker Seymer
Henry F. Talbot Esqre
31 Sackville St
2. Her son, Henry Ker Seymer (1807–1864), JP & MP.
3. Possibly Lady Theresa Anna Maria Fox-Strangways, daughter of the 3rd Earl of Ilchester, and Harriot Georgiana Mundy, née Frampton (1806-1886), WHFT’s cousin & sister-in-law.
