6Dear Dr Jacobs
7
8I have been staying here for the heart cure: it will be over in about
9ten ^8^ days & then I must rest somewhere for the ?new-air & then I
10hoped, I might be able to come to Amsterdam & see you for a few days
11on my way back to England.
12
13Will you be at home towards the middle of next month? & would it be
14quite convenient for you if I came? Please don’t mind saying if you
15have other visitors or would not find it convenient. I want so much to
16see you again, but I want to know, as if I do not come to see you I
17shall go to England another way without passing through Holland. My
18unreadable Brother is here with me, but when his cure is over I think
19he will go to Sweeden & I shall be alone My little niece Ursula says I
20must thank you so much for your kind letter to her. She mislaid your
21letter & so did not answer it. It would be such a great pleasure to me
22to see you again If it is very hot I should not be able to stay more
23than a couple of days in Amsterdam, as heat is the one thing I can’t
24stand, but I must see you if can.

26Yours ever
