Tremadoc, Carnarvonshire, 29 July, 1843.

DEAR COUSIN JEANNIE—We have got across Snowdon, and proceeded under various auspices, especially under very bad weather, thus far; and now to-morrow morning we are about to turn round for Carnarvon, and after that towards Liverpool; where finally we hope to arrive by the Ayrshire Lassie or some other obliging steamer on the evening of Monday. We will come direct to Maryland Street, and the kind little cousin there. Our Doctor, I believe, will go back to his “Feathers,”1 and I at present seem to feel as if I should rest better in my big room for a pair of days than anywhere else. We shall have to go to the Paulets—could you undertake to appoint Tuesday for that, or Wednesday at latest? I think the Annan steamer sails about Thursday. I am horribly tired of tourifying, and want immensely to be at rest somewhere.

I add not another word this night, but my love to Cousin Jeannie, and all the other cousins, and am always the good Baby's

Most devoted


We are in the house of Mr. Chorley here, who sits looking at me while I write.
