Honored Father
I have only time to say that

S. dated 4 Feb, in which he says, he
has no news from Pollydore
Birth: 1799-07-02 Death: 1872-04-25
— such is the
tenor of his letter, I do not doubt him.
I have been wishing to write, but
had no time — just recd an instalment
& next week we have an election — which
makes me a deal of labour in the
stock accounts.
I have not been Idle in Conciliar
affairs. Have written long & forcibly
to Harry

& expect
him here next Thursday.
