My dear Talbot

I went down yesterday according to my promise but Brougham <1> did not present the Petition.

To day I am sorry to say I am confined to my Sofa. I only mention this lest you should suspect me of forgetfulness of your wishes

Always yours



1. Henry Peter Brougham, Baron of Brougham & Voux (17781868), Lord Chancellor was to have petitioned against the Great Western Railway. WHFT, like many landlords, objected to the route proposed by the Railway through their land. [See Doc. No: 00066]
