Cambridge, November 1864
Emily may not be able as she was, but all she can, she will.
Father told me that you were going. I wept for the little Plants, but rejoiced for you.
Had I loved them as well as I did, I could have begged you to stay with them, but they are Foreigners, now, and all, a Foreigner.
I have been sick so long I do not know the Sun.
I hope they may be alive, for Home would be strange except them, now the World is dead.
Anna Norcross lives here, since Saturday, and two new people more, a person and his wife, so I do little but fly, yet always a news.
I shall go Home in two weeks. You will get me at Palmer, yourself. Let no one beside come.
Love for Eliza, and Mr Dudley.
