My dear Henry

I like you to know that if you are at Lacock now it is worth while to come over to Clifton to see your old friends & Cousins! I am here now and so is Emma with Mr Llewelyn <1> & their 4 Daughters, besides Isabella <2> & her two now in addition to these inducements, I must tell you that there are reminiscences of Penrice that will delight your heart in the shape of lovely Photographs, & brilliant flowers from Penllergare to delight your eyes! Jane <3> is at Torquay but intends coming here for a day in her way back into Glamorganshire. they are uncertain in their movements as the weather is of consequence to Lucy <4>.
