Dear Henry,

Your letter <1> has followed me to Ireland and I consequently cannot give you the very last account of my Father, <2> but when I last heard viz. yesterday, he was better, tho his leg still makes him a complete cripple, and till the wound is healed, he will not be able to get about again. His leg blistered, from a blow he gave it against the coalscuttle, and has refused hitherto to heal, but I hope it has now taken a favourable turn. I am on my way back to England after passing ten days in Ireland. Many thanks for your kind wishes about the boys, and remember me very much to all your family.

Yours affy
