My dear William,

I have just learnt from Mr.
Gairdner that the Mail is delayed a day

I wrote yesterday under the discomfort
of miserable November weather, & cold fingers
To day it is mild & pleasant, but I have
but a few minutes to spare, as I found our
old friend Admiral Erskine here when
I came in two hours ago. Julia Norman was
also here, but did not stay long -–she &
Charlie are taking care of B. C. while Mr &
Mrs. Norman & Sibby are absent on a visit to [?]
[?]. Erskine is looking remarkably well
& promises to come again soon. He will be in
Town for a fortnight He begged to be most kindly
remembered to you – as did Julia Norman. We like
her very much & think Charlie has made an
excellent choice. Emily & Elizabeth are gone to pay
visits to the Robert Martins, & Aunt Forbes.
We are all quite well & of course talked much
of Australia and Australians with the Admiral

So much for domestic news & now let me supply
