My Dear Henry

We are very sorry hear from Mama <1> that Mrs Talbot <2> has been so ill and sincerely hope you will be able to give us a better account of her & that your anxiety is relieved by this time– as the baby was not mentioned I trust she is as well as you could wish – You must indeed have suffered very much from anxiety but I hope you will soon be rewarded by the complete recovery of your dear wife.

Pray write me a line as soon as you can as we are very desirous of hearing again – Your affectionate cousin

Charlotte Traherne

Your Hibiscus Manihot is come up in our stove–
