Content Description

She is worried as recent post deliveries have been scattered; Mr. Banks continues to lie very ill, in his delirium he blames mainly Mr. Grenville, but also the Bishop [of Derry]; she still nurses her daughter and has grown thin with the strain, Mr. Durno helps by taking her place from time to time; she wonders whether Humphry could arrange it for Mr. Lock to see [Grenville's] basso relievo, as he is a friend and great dilettanti. She begs he give the news of Mr. Banks's illness to his sister before the press report spurious details; he should also tell Mrs Stevens that she received her letter; she expects Miss Hadfield daily, her mother leaves in the Spring; Mr. [Bouby?] has changed his religion to marry a daughter of the Justice; Piranesi is dead and has left great riches; she provides her reasons for moving accomodation, which involve her daughter's charms.
