about February 1873
We learn thro' Cousins Montague that you have lost your Sister through that sweeter Loss which we call Gain.
I am glad she is glad.
Her early pain had seemed to me peculiarly cruel.
Tell her how tenderly we are pleased.
Recall me too to your other Sisters, who tho' they may have mislaid me I can always find and include me to your sweet Wife. We are daily reminded of you by the Clergyman, Mr Jenkins, whom you strongly resemble.
Thank you for the Paper -
It is Home-like to know where you are.
We can almost hear you announce the Text, when the Air is clear and how social if you should preach us a note some Sunday in Recess.
