at once, or your vineyards are lost forever. I feel quite uneasy [indecipherable] say on the subject. Will you kindly tell Mr. James Macarthur with my kind love that I saw Mr. & Mrs. Norman two or three days ago [indecipherable] I was much pleased to see both of them looking remarkably well, Mrs. Norman quite handsome & sturdy, far better than she looked a year ago, tho' she was complaining of rheumatica & the old gentleman unchanged in appearance & as bright [indecipherable] as ever, made three attempts to see Mary who is stopping with her Charles just now, but was all for [indecipherable] finding her at home. They told me that she was very well [indecipherable].
