Pisa. 1st of April 1870

My dear Papa,

The letter of credit for £300, for which we thank you very much, reached me safely yesterday evening, too late for me to give you notice by return of post. It was sent by the Post Office direct to this house, so that I had not even the trouble to go and enquire for it at Peverada’s. It is curious that the post should take four days in going from here to you, and only three in coming to us; the hour also is inconvenient for answering letters, as they arrive after five, and we dine at 5½ and post goes out at 6. Mamie thanks you very much for your letter which she will answer soon. The Times gave an excellent article on the acquittal of Prince Pierre, in which I am glad to see he does not agree with you as to the justice of the Sentence!

Thank Charles also for his letter.

I have not written so often quite lately being plagued rather with weak eyes, caused perhaps by the cold winds.

Today it is much milder, and we have been wandering happily in the Campo Santo. Yesterday was exceedingly cold and dismal, with a Scotch mist.

Please tell Henriette to send us, or ask Ela to send, the address where we may write to her in Paris, in case of any direction to give her. I hope Mama was not much bothered by our asking for her sooner than she expected.

Mamie wrote to Tilly on the 29th

Thank you for your letter just received, and good bye, dear Papa, for I have no time for more,

Your affectionate daughter
