I am very glad that it is in thy power to return thy <polling> paper, as I was obliged at another person’s expenses and thou wouldst otherwise have been placed in a painful situation —
I must thank thee however, truly, for thy good intentions —
When I heard of poor
Henry Barclay’s illness from dear Jane B; a few days ago, I feared for the <insult> & thy information confirms all my fears –
I hope Lady Buxton Junior is now quite well again & will be able to enjoy their projected tour –
I was disappointed in not seeing thee – when though wast last here
But I saw thy dear Ellen and was much pleased to see her looking so perfectly well.
Poor Mrs. Redgrave feels deeply her sister’s death —
Dear Anna Gurney is at Thisworth, &much amended in health —
She ^is> radiant with delight while she described the wonders of the Chrystal Palace, & her enjoyment of it.
I shall direct this & the polling paper to Lombard Street where I suppose thee to be Thy good father is I believe in Yorkshire
With kind love to Madame,
thy obliged friend
 mentions Anna Gurney’s delight at “Chrystal Palace” therefore after 1 May 1851 (which is consonant with small notepaper and ink from this period).
