Dear Mr Talbot

Your letter <1> received yesterday gave me the liveliest pleasure accept my warmest thanks for it – that from Constance affords me equal delight –

You will be sorry tho’ not surprised to hear Mr Mundy <2> has got a slight attack of gout, so that our intention of moving must stand postponed for the present, but I trust it will soon pass off – I was glad to know of your prolonged stay at Richmond, this lovely weather it must be very enjoyable & today we are thinking you will have another delightful walk –

I write to Constance <3> will you take the trouble to direct the enclosed <4> letters –

Believe me ever most sincerely yours
S. Mundy
