and Mrs. Porter
Birth: 1803-03-30 Death: 1866-03-02
- which
of course you much regret- I found
the articles you sent after they they
left part of which I return, with

ed Author-whose kindness in “days
of lang syne” are still remembered
with gratitude.

for me-
I cannot realize that I have been here
seven weeks, “time indeed has been
sadly fleet,” it will today part

weeks, beneath my own roof- this
delightful anticipation are is among
the few pleasures I have in prospect —S
Do not disappoint your sincerely
attached Serene-
