May 8. 1835

Dear Sir–

The kind of person you require is, I think, one who will be attentive, quiet, and judicious, to act under your present Nurse & not a tip top – fine lady of a Nurse.

There is a person who goes out occasionally as Nurse & is quite trustworthy– who would probably answer the present purpose very well–

Mrs Gosling
No 36 Harwood Street
Lisson Grove- near the Yorkshire Stingo

She could be at your Service for 3 weeks, or thereabouts, afterwards She is engaged for the whole summer to keep my House where my family are at Hampstead–

There is also Mrs Chambers No 2 Great Quebec Street New Road who would do–

Likewise Mrs Rough whose Card is enclosed & who is known to Lady Cawdor <1> & Mrs George– 88 Waterloo Road Waterloo Bridge whom Lady Kerrison <2> mentioned to me as an attentive judicious person–

I hope you may find one of these & that her assistance may prove useful–

Believe me Dear Sir – Very Truly Yours
R M Kerrison
