My dear Talbot

Since Emily wrote to Constance, <1> & which letter we hope she will have read before you open this, our worst fears have been realized respecting my poor Mother. <2> She quietly expired soon after 3 oclock today, without having appeared to suffer much since yesterday. Of course we could not be prepared for so sudden a blow, yet I am thankful to say my Sisters have borne it admirably & my Father <3> is tolerable. Pray break this to Constance as quietly as you can, as she has not altogether recovered her accustomed strength. Give all our tenderest loves to her & believe me

Ever yours sincerely
W. Mundy

Southampton
March 10.

H.F. Talbot Esqr
31. Sackville St
London
