Mrs. Hunt hope that Mrs. Carlyle will be well enough, with the help of an omnibus, to favour her with her company this evening; though she begs it to be understood, that she by no means takes any such thing for granted, being a terrible stayer at home herself, & knowing enough of illness to be aware that night-air & visits are not always to be trusted, even at a short distance. For the rest, I can only say that my wife is a proper housewifely woman, very maternally given, who will take as much care of yours as if she were her eldest daughter.
Very truly yours,
March 3.  – York Buildings.
