I

LADY SUSAN VERNON TO MR. VERNON


Langford, Dec.


MY DEAR BROTHER,--I can no longer refuse myself the pleasure of
profiting by your kind invitation when we last parted of spending some
weeks with you at Churchhill, and, therefore, if quite convenient to you
and Mrs. Vernon to receive me at present, I shall hope within a few days to
be introduced to a sister whom I have so long desired to be acquainted
with. My kind friends here are most affectionately urgent with me to
prolong my stay, but their hospitable and cheerful dispositions lead them
too much into society for my present situation and state of mind; and I
impatiently look forward to the hour when I shall be admitted into Your
delightful retirement.

I long to be made known to your dear little children, in whose hearts I
shall be very eager to secure an interest. I shall soon have need for all
my fortitude, as I am on the point of separation from my own daughter.
