From London, to Dr [Thomas Griffin] Tarpley in Virginia, thanking
him for his letter of June 30th and hoping that her own has arrived safely.
She has just returned to London from a visit to Bristol with her father. Before she left for Bristol, she called to see Tarpley's children in Chelsea, but was disappointed to find that they were at school. She was also unable to see Lady Gower, as she had left for the country, but Mrs Hall has promised to speak to her on Sally's behalf.
He mentioned in one of his letters that he had passed through Bristol, and had liked the place. As a native of the City she prefers it to any other town, and she only wishes that she could visit it in his company.
She wishes that he could write more often, and encloses some verses that describe her feelings for him.
