Letter from Henry Thomas Colebrooke to Belinda Sutherland Colebrooke. He had not received Belinda's note and therefore was unaware that she was already at Mrs Cockburn's. He understands that Harriet is not strong enough to bear travelling from London to Devonshire. He asks to thanks Mrs Cockburn for her invitation but as yet does not know whether the Youngs are coming to stay with him and therefore cannot make any engagements. Handwritten, dated 5 August 1820.
