Dear Talbot

I shall be very happy to see you on the 16th, I have had more or less Gout since the day after my arrival here, yesterday I imagined I was convalescent & shot a few pheasants but with the aid of a poney, but I find the toe King resents the proceeding, We have here some neighbours Mr H Stapleton of the Morley race, an Austrian Baron &c pray remember me kindly to Mr Feilding & Ly Elizth <1>

& believe me yours very Sincerely
Carnarvon
