Dear Harriet

mr Clark will deliver you this Susan has a Letter from her Mother urgeing her to come to See her, and consenting to her.… which I cannot under present circumstances—so they say no more to me—I think with you that it will be best for them to go Silently and if <a> female travelling companion can be found at the Same time it will be more agreable—fine weather for your Father & Sister

Mr C will tell you all about the party at Milton Hill—we have got dr Franklins [private] correspondence, lately publishd by his Grandson it will be a treat to you—but when Shall I See you again to stay with us? I am better than When I wrote last, Louissa much the Same—the P has a voilent cold taken a riding on horse back to the Seaside wind East, inflamed his Eyes, but he will read—I Shall write to Caroline to day. Sir has written to mr D.

Mrs A writes Susan that mr Johnsons buisness is Such that he cannot leave it to visit us—

The Ribbon did not come—

Yours as ever
