Queen’s Hotel Birmingham
Tuesday evening.

Matilda <1> has not said half enough in praise of the our supper – We had chicken, accompanied by the most delicious tongue that ever was eaten. butter perfect, much superior to that we have been having at Lacock for sometime past. – bread very good too; – it is the more strange that they should select their teas so badly. Our rooms are very comfortable indeed,

Adieu, try & make yourself comfortable in your Solitude.

Your affectionate


1. Matilda Caroline Gilchrist-Clark, ‘Tilly’, née Talbot (1839–1927), WHFT’s 3rd daughter.
