Dear Mr Talbot
I am happy to say we are disengaged the next week, & shall be happy to see you at the time you propose that is on the 18th – Trusting the weather may prove propitious for our little excursions, & hoping you will allow as much time as you can conveniently for the purpose, (bearing in mind the uncertainty of our very capricious climate) I remain with the best regards of this Family
Yours very truly
Henry F. Talbot Esq
