No address or postmark.

Letter C--

Sunday Morn Feby 14th

My dear Brother & Sister--

How is it we have not heard from you from the Settlement yet? The Letters must surely have miscarried. I am in expectation every day--Peachey wrote me a few days ago saying some more acquaintances of his were preparing to set out for Birkbeck--therefore I shall take the opportunity of sending you what I can muster in a sheet or two-- I am still at Wentworth Place--indeed I have kept in doors lately, resolved if possible to rid myself of my sore throat--consequently I have not been to see your Mother since my return from Chichester--but my absence from her has been a great weight upon me. I say since my return from Chichester--I believe I told you I was going thither--I was nearly a fortnight at Mr John Snook's and a few days at old Mr Dilke's1--Nothing worth speaking of happened at either place--I took down some of the thin paper and wrote on it a little Poem call'd 'St Agnes Eve'-- which you shall have as it is when I have finished the blank part of the rest for you. I went out twice at Chichester to old Dowager card parties. I see very little now, and very few Persons--being almost tired of Men

123.Of this important letter the sheets of the holograph have been more or less distributed. The largest portion is in Lord Crewe's collection; the opening sheet, four pages quarto, in the collection of Mr. Howard J. Sachs, of New York; and an octavo leaf, two pages, in Harvard College Library. These and the missing sections are indicated in the footnotes.
