My dear Henry
As you anticipate I cannot receive you as comfortably as I should desire in my present House full but I will seek the book you name & send it by Kit <2> to London when he leaves me – I wish you may be able to peep upon me when Spring advances & more of Crocus tribe appear. Pray give my kind regards to all at Hanford <3> of family party
Ever Your Affecte
