You are here
We have seen Miles, he is very well & has a very good place managing one of the hotels and his wages £250 a year. Mr Wright wanted to be head servant here & he would get about the the same wage but he wisely decided to change a certainty for what may only last a few months. He was very glad to see us. Uncle E. has just been in to say I am to tell you from him to get two handsome gold bracelets one for Isabella & the other for me & he encloses the order for their payments. He also sends you his love.
We were disappointed in not finding any letters from England but I had a letter from Isabella. The English mail had not arrived at Camden when she wrote. They are all well at home. It is now quite settled that we go home by the Steamer [indecipherable] but poor Uncle E does not take our going at all. We must [indecipherable] to be here again soon if Papa is able. I shall like to see dear Camden again. God bless you my own Uncle. Love & many kisses from yr ever affect. niece E.
