My dear William

We have received your various
letters to the 20th September & we trust the next
mail may bring equally satisfactory accounts
of the well-being of all at Camden & of the
restoration of the Vineyard to it's wonted state of order
& the gradual settlement of things after the
unexampled ravages of the Floods. The season
we hope will continue propitious, & the harvest
be such as to set all things on a stable &
comfortable footing again. I am not surprised
at the Balance in the Bank being reduced to
£400 or £500 towards the end of the year after
the heavy outgoings requisite to restore things –
coming too after the large sums expended
for the Parsonage &c. I sent you (by the August
mail I think –) a statement of our pecuniary

Store room for our good & Chattels.

Among other things I have omitted the proximity
to the Kensington Museum which Elizabeth desires to
attend as a pupil to the Drawing Class & we believe
Sally Norman will join her in this coming to stay
here in the days for attending the drawing Class, &
remaining the night. Then again there is ample
room & range enough for you should you determine on
joining us for a time before we quit Europe. So much
for this subject which has more than exhausted my four
pages. On others I will take a fresh sheet.

Yr affecte Brother

J. Macarthur
