My dear Senhouse

If no unforeseen interruption should occur, we purpose to be with you between three & four o’clock, on Monday next, – Edith & her mother, – &, with your leave, Cuthbert & his maid, – saltwater having been recommended for him, on account for a of a roughness of the skin, of obstinate continuance. With the aid of a crib, they can occupy the same room as Edith.

Farewell, & believe me

yrs affectionately

Robert Southey.
