Content Description

She is glad to hear that Humphry has been amusing himself in the country. She is not satisfied will his will to visit her, unless he does visit. She will not wait until May for Mr. Aust to "make escuses for his seeming negligence", she would not wait five minutes for him.

She is glad to hear Humphry's nephew is back in town. Mr. Daniell must be grateful that Humphry has procured him so favourable a position, particularly as he was "so lost" during the past three years. She will write letters of introduction for him to be sent with Sir G. Yonge.

Her father is still in very poor health. She encloses a note for her "Admiral" and asks if her servant gave him the key to the garret.
