Sunday [24 August 1845]

Dearest—You said one word rather than none at all— This time I comply literally— I meant to have written while the rest were at church but Mr Paulet has just whispered to me (a secret from the children) that a journey over the water is intended instead of going to church and that I must put on my bonnet with all dispatch—I hope there will be a letter from you awaiting our return— The weather has been so wet—hindering all our schemes for travel that it is not unwise to take advantage of this bright morning especially as I have been headachy for some days

God bless you my own dearest Good— I wish you were going with us
