‘Broadstairs: 11th Sept., 1838.

‘My dear Sarah,—I left home on Saturday and making the usual stages arrived here yesterday and am now as quietly established with Maltby, in the old room, as if we had never left it. Your letter I received as I drove from the door, the postman throwing it in at the carriage window, and I rejoice to think you have done so well, wet and cold as the weather has been. From Cashiobury I went with a little interval to Holland House where I caught a cruel cold, which is not gone and has so dismayed me that I have given up everything beyond Paris. William thinks of coming here for a few days before I go, but has not yet decided between Paris and Liverpool. I think he will go to Liverpool. Lady Cork
dined at Holland House on the 27th, and on September 5 with me, and on Friday I had a family party of Sharpes, Towgoods and Miss Slater. . . . So
Mrs. Charles Kemble is dead and Mrs. Sturch. My present scheme is to set off for Paris in about a fortnight, and a letter afterwards to the P. O. will find me there. The Websters have been staying in Lady Mary’s apartments in Windsor Castle. The Hollands set off on the 5th as you say; Sir Stephen and Allen with them in the first carriage. Travelling post, they slept at Rochester and Canterbury, and a Government packet, price twenty-five guineas, met them at Dover. Pray give my love to Margaret and tell her I have not forgot my promises.

‘Yours ever,
‘S. R.’
