Letter: Owen on behalf of himself, Sarah and Henry, Thurlow Lodge, London to his brother [John] Owen, Ship Charles Sprague, Cardiff

Scope and Content

LETTER: Owen on behalf of himself, Sarah and Henry, Thurlow Lodge, Clapham S. London to his brother [John] Owen, Ship Charles Sprague, Cardiff. He received his letter from Cork and prays for his safety having read of such destruction in shipping. The lodge will probably be sold before long and he does not know what the future holds for him. He wouldn't mind staying on if the new owner of the estate can offer him employment. He received a letter from his brother in Carnarfon who complained of a bad cough. He has two or three sales in view. [His brother is possibly an auctioneer.] The writer has not heard from Jane Edwards but he believes she is going to five Mr. Read up. She never fancied him for a husband but alright as a walking stick. He thinks women are very deceitful as he heard that Jane corresponds with a former sweetheart who is a sailor. He doesn't like deceit as he feels that Henry Read is very respectable.
