Autograph letter signed, one page, 12mo (mourning paper), Ryde, "Friday," n.d. A gentle letter to an unidentified correspondent discussing family and friends: ". . . I have . . . the news of Mr Jameson's death. . . . I am exceedingly glad that Joseph Jameson has determined to do what is just & right -- You, romantic as you are must see that to leave you nothing is a base fraud. I should have opposed the Will -- if he had left his property to his brother or even to Alma. . . . My visit has been a sad one here. Mrs Goldsmith's brother, who has only been married a yr -- is here I fear dying. . . . [H]is pretty little Wife, who . . . makes one think of 'Behold the Lillies [sic] of the field . . . wants to be taken such care of -- and I have not the heart to tell her, 'He will never recover.' Bryan is here, he was very poorly indeed when first he arrived. . . . Adelaide is well, and went to a Lecture given by a Mrs Hamilton . . . on Music. . . ." A few light stains; minor wear; else very good.
