Scope and Content

From Elizabeth Waller in Islington, London, to Sarah Wesley in Charles Street, Bristol. She is uneasy about the long silence from Bristol, and trusts that everyone is fine.

[James] Waller left for Flanders last Saturday.

Their sister Mrs Price gave birth to a son last week, and both mother and child are doing well.

Lady Anne Hamilton is travelling to Garth, Brecknockshire, via Bristol, and is considering visiting the Wesleys on the way.

Marmaduke Gwynne junior has been here staying with his family at Lady Hamilton's house. A rather ambiguous reference is made to a dispute between Marmaduke and the Wallers over money owed to the Wallers and possibly Rebecca Gwynne, with the implication that James Waller is considering legal action. Lady Anne Hamilton is also involved and may try to raise the matter when she visits the Wesleys. Rebecca Gwynne never hears from Marmaduke now, and the Wallers did not have prior knowledge of Marmaduke's visit to London.

Reference is also made to Edward Baldwyn, [Anne] Vigor, Mr Shirley, and Prudence [Box].
