Dear Mr Talbot

The enclosed note <1> to the people who have charge of our house will ensure their taking good care of any baggage it may be convenient to you to deposit in Q. A. St <2>

I have written to Mr J. Hall by Constance’s <3> desire to ask if he has any Protegé in the shape of any an intelligent Youth whom he could recommend to you unluckily he is not in Town at present & as we set out tomorrow, I fear I shall not get his answer [illegible deletion] before we go – but he is aware of our Movements & has also your address in Sackville St. <4>

We are rejoiced to hear an improved account of Mr Feilding, <5> & are looking forward with much pleasure to our visit at Lacock – on the 29h the day we leave Moreton <6>

Pls believe me Yours very truly
S. Mundy
