Dear Talbot

I was asked a question the other day which I could not an answer, & the solution of the difficulty must come from you. I was applied to, as to when your money was to be paid in consequence of the failure of Hammersleys <1> Bank. Will you therefore be so good to inform me when you wish it to be paid, that I may give the necessary directions. I was very glad to hear that you had not been much of a loser by Hammersley.

How do you all bear this severe weather? Harriot <2> is pretty well again & Noel <3> is brilliant. We had last night the heaviest fall of snow that I have known here for years & every prospect of more, but it is much warmer of course, which is a comfort. With love to Constance <4> believe me

Ever yours truly
W. Mundy

Markeaton <5>
