In Mr Williams’ absence from home I opened your letter this morning and have forwarded it to him in Essex by this day’s post. I am sorry he does not return till next Saturday but any day after that we shall have great pleasure in seeing you here, where we are residing and also in receiving your little boy the last week in this month when our holidays terminate.

I remain, Sir truly yours
Emma L. Williams
