My dear Henry

You wished to hear whether Sophy Ilchester would be likely to live at Abbotsbury, but that could not be – as Uncle William had no power to leave it to her even for her life – she will probably make 31 Burlington St. her home, as that is hers for her life. & she intends to settle there in the course of next week – We left her the day before yesterday – she is but very middling & wants rest & care to restore her to health – she feels now very much the over exertion of the last few months, which she did not at the time – her brother George is with her, & will remain in Burlington St. for some time to come –

I do not think there is any fear of the garden at Abbotsbury being neglected – everything is to be kept up as nearly as possible as it has been, during Harry’s minority & I hope when he comes of age he may wish to do the same

Yr. affte cousin
