Dear Talbot

I have been in expectation some time of hearing from Mr Paley <1> but as he does not write I take it for granted that he has fulfilled what seemed to be his purpose of residing at Lacock for some time longer – In the mean while as my health is not yet perfectly established I have agreed to go with Julius Hare & W. S. Landor <2> who is now in Town on to the Continent for a few months in spite of cholera & cannonading & in search of health & the picturesque We shall pause at Bonn & Spa so that a letter would reach me at either of those places & be right welcome – Do you know Landors latin poems there is a volume lately published with English ones also worth buying

Believe me Dear Talbot Yours very Sincerely
Thos Worsley
