My dear Henry
Pray come & make us a visit here Sir J. Nicholl <2> desires me to beg you will come & to say how happy they all will be to see you The party from Penrice <3> will be at Margam <4> next week & then you can go on to see them there as I know you have not seen Margam for years & I assure you the Garden is in high beauty at present. The Steam Packet will bring you across to Newport, but you would do better to come all the way by the Mail as that leaves Bristol at 9 in the morning & passes the Lodge here at ½ past 6 in the afternoon we dine at 7 so you will come in good time –
I hope you will come as I shall enjoy shewing you all about this place – Charry <5> is here with me –
