My dear Henry

Papa <1> is going on well, tho’ not always equally so, as he has ups & downs but the doctors say we must expect that & not be disheartened. Yesterday he was very restless & complained a good deal, but to-day again he is much quieter – just now he had some mince chicken which is a great step – The leg is diminishing but very slowly. Mr Kenrick <2> was here to-day & saw him. He told us Laycock Abbey was looking beautiful yesterday & made us long to see all the flowers, but had not seem Ela & Rosamond <3> & so could not report how they looked – Give them & Constance <4> my love

Yr affte Sister
Horatia
