Dear Henry

Many thanks for your kind consideration in writing to tell me that Charles is at Venice – it is a great pleasure to receive a letter from you, and I accept your good wishes of the Season most readily though Christmas is rather distant –

I hope you will find Matilda well, and strong, give her my love, and I shall like some day to hear, if she continues to approve of her Governess –

I hear very good accts of Harriet Mundy, she is better than usual this Winter –

Have you the “Tropæolum Azureum”? I saw it in a garden in our neighbourhood, & admired it very much.

What a useful creeper the Tacsonia Van Volxemii is, it has been blowing here for several weeks –

I wish you could be persuaded to spend a morning at Merstham in the Spring, or summer, as the Train from Charing-cross brings you to our station in ½ an hour –

Wishing you a merry Christmas in Scotland –

Believe me yours Very Truly
Sophia P. Hylton

Henry Talbot Esqre.
Lacock Abbey
