Tuesday 2nd April

My dear Henry

As I hear you are thinking of taking Sheichelbauer <2>, I must tell you how very highly Harriet & Mr Mundy <3> thought of him you know he was with them a whole year, & when Noel <4> was ill at Florence, nothing could be more zealous & thoughtful than he was He was also with Ly Lyttleton <5> abroad & took care of one of her daughters who had been left behind at Wiesbaden I should have put you in mind of him before, only I did not know you wanted a courier or whether he was to be had He speaks very good Italian Mama & Caroline <6> set off this morng but got no farther than Stonehouse as they were stopped by a letter announcing that Mr Atwood <7> would set off with Val. <8> tomorrow so to our infinite surprise they appeared again at the end of an hour They mean to be off tomorrow if nothing new occurs We had the Lords of the Admiralty to dinner yesterday, & today went on board the Black Eagle to lunch with them Harry Corry & Sidney Herbert & Captn Corry <9> They sail tonight for Cork it has been most beautiful bright weather for the last 6 days

Yr aff sister
Horatia
