It is now some time since I received any Lrs. from home but hope upon my return to G.Land to find some awaiting my arrival {as I believe 2 or 3 mails have come in lately} informing me that you are all well and not conveyg such melancholy news as two or 3 previous ones. Have been rather anxious to know how Nabs is getting on - Satisfactorily and prosperously I hope - thought to have heard from him but suppose he has been too busily engaged. Heard from Robert recently he was quite well apparently in good spirits 'forging ahead' a bit. Now no doubt you wonder what has brought me again to Melbourne - will endeavour to enlighten you on that point - it was a very unexpected trip for me.
