My dear Mr Talbot

I must just write a line to thank you for the trouble you have had the kindness to take in Henry’s <1> behalf. Mr Berens’s <2> answer is quite as favorable as we could have expected & his way of mentioning Henry very good natured. It was no disappointment to him to fail this time as with only one vacancy he did not in the least expect to come in, but he will stand a better chance next year when there will be several vacancies. Pray remember us kindly to Lady Elizabeth <3> & your sisters if they are with you,

& believe me Yrs sincerely
Harriet Ker Seymer.

Henry F. Talbot Esqre
