We are in such confusion ever since nine ’clock this morning, when the Duke decided to go to England tomorrow, which we should have been otherwise glad of, if we had not left you at Paris; the idea of parting with you hurts us more than we can describe, but as we have a great deal to do, we think...

I have just received my dear Miss Jefferson’s kind letter which surprized very agreeably as I had seen some time ago in the newspapers, that you were at Cowes, we have frequently thought of you since, imagining you were on the sea by this time—I do not think we shall be wrong in our conclusions—I...
