To: Mrs Jonathan, c/o Mrs Buckley, Merry Meeting, Cury, Cornwall

Monday

Thank you for P.C. this morning, I was afraid E. would have felt very tired before reaching Cury. My blouse has just arrived, a different red but very nice. Have bought a copy of the Messiah for both of us. H. arrived at 8.0 to see if I was up. All the family well including L.W. and M. Smith. I had 2 cwt of coal. Dolly
