6 I have just got your card saying you likely sail tomorrow. My heart as
7been unreadable bad & I have not been able to write any letters of
8introduction to my friends ^in England^. But you will have so much to
9see & do for a long time, you would not be able to use them for some
10time. I feel as if I had always a great ball of lead in my chest & yet
11it throbs though its so heavy.

13 Little Neta remains the same. I am so glad you are going, no one who
14does not belong to the 17th century would willingly live here I think
15unless they could live on a farm. I am sure your change will do you
16both much, & it may be that you will stay in Europe.

18 Good bye, my beloved friends. We are having fine weather now. My dear
19husband is well, & I think happy & busy with his work.

21 All good be with you both.
