My dear Henry

We did not write yesterday as there was not much change, tho the doctors did say they thought rather more favorably of him <1> but this morning they have pronounced him decidedly better, & so I will not delay telling you the good news. He is now laying [sic] on the sofa which makes a little change, as he is so tired of his bed They think his leg rather less swelled than it was, & hope the inflammation is subsiding. He talks more too & is more like himself Mama <2> took a little drive yesterday & will I hope again to-day She looks rather better. I hope you received the wedding cake Theresa <3> is in town but I have not yet seen her. They set off on their tour next Saturday I hope the nice things are well give my love to Constance <4>
