Letter

Scope and Content

From Marianne Francis at the Sessions House, Kingston on Thames, Surrey, to New Street, London, concerning the accommodation situation in Kingston. Her lodgings are very pleasant and at fifteen shillings a week are very reasonable. She gives further details of rents and conditions in case Sally and Charles decide to spend some time in the town. Her thanks should be passed to Charles for the letter that he sent.

Francis has been visiting the female prisoners and reading to them from the bible. At first they laughed at her, but are now eager to listen.

Reference is made to Sally's 'providential escape'. Francis trusts that she has now recovered from her experience.

Her sister Charlotte is in poor health.
