Scope and Contents

Harriet writes from St. Albans Bank, saying that it is lovely and that she wishes she could have Charles, George, Bradford, Robert, and Caroline with her. She mentions Robert's return trip and hopes that he has "got over his annoyance about the Cab..." She asks for Caroline to have the servants wash and press "my lilac flounced dress" and for Charles to bring it with him when he comes, "with the clogs india Rubber ones [sic]," and to send a note from Mary along to Annie Beale. She comments on her restful sleep and expresses her wish that Charles will join them if they stay in St. Albans Bank longer. She closes by saying the letter is written in great haste and adds a note on the outside page to request a sketch book be sent.
