6 I must write you a line to congratulate you on the return of your dear
7ones. I wish I could have been with you to see all all the rejoicings

9my old Brother looks: as for my boy Oliver I expect he has grown out
10of all knowing. It’s so bad to think it will be months & months
11before I can see them.
