Dear Mr Talbot –
Accept my thanks twice over; for your recollection of me and for the pleasure you have afforded me in reading “the legendary tales” <1> so well told. I shall be happy if you will join our very small tea party this Even: & afford me an opportunity of offering you my acknowledgments in person
Believe me yours truly
Jane St John Mildmay
