My Dearest Wife,
I am glad to find you got up so comfortably and Mr Adam’s report is especially gratifying, we must keep on persevering with the treatment and then I think our little woman will grow up nice and straight, give her a kiss for me and tell her what a good thing it is she lies down properly and does her exercises well.
The enclosed letter from Charlotte came yesterday, I think the vest does nicely only the sleeves are full long, you will see on your return, I wrote Charlotte to that effect. I hear from Rashleigh that the London Dr does not give a good opinion of his father and I fear it is an almost hopeless case.
I am not going to Alcester this evening for I really am too busy. The chicks are all well. Give my love to all at Surbiton and hoping you will enjoy your little outing.
I am ever
your loving Husband
