The Park Wednesday [11 July 1849]

Dearest John

No letter today yet only the promise of one so soon as I have a leisure hour—every moment here is taken up in seeing sights and being made much of—you who have so lately gone thro the thing yourself can understand “how I am situated” (as Mr C's phrase is) Here is a letter from him— which I wish you all much good of—that sort of letter all about everything and for the public good is nothing to me

I am enchanted with Miss Neuberg and intend that you should marry her—she is extremely fond of you—and really there is no objection that I can see—

Edward the servant I was to tell you with their love is much better— I came here Monday night—went yesterday to Clifton1 Gone today to Newstead Abbey am going now to see lace made— And tomorrow we go to Chat'sworth—sleep at a rural Inn2 Miss & Mr Newberg and I and then they deposit me at Barnsly where I spend a few hours with Mrs Newton and on to Leeds— W Edward3 will pick me up there at nine at night— I should have liked to stay here much longer but Forster cant get to Ireland till I have been at Rawdon

Love to all and a kiss to yourself

Your affectionate /
