My dear George
I conclude you have had the goodness to consent to my request in prolonging my stay here a week or 10 days longer, in your next perhaps you may be able to fix a time for coming, I yesterday called upon
Mrs C - V. and insisted upon her calling, for me to go with her to Mr Chines this morning, unfortunately it happened to be the morning he went out to visit patients but would be at home with six at which hour we . . . . . an to go again, I thought you would be greatly disappointed if you did not hear from me to day, or what I would have deferred it to have sent you an account of Mr Chines opinion of her, she is going to spend the day and begs to be very kindly remembered to you and all at Stoke, we called with your letter into Mr Blair on Monday he would have written an answer but I told him I expected you in town he very politely offered himself to go anywhere with us that we liked which we thanked him for, do you think you could spare time to take us a little trip in our Chaise to Henley and Oxford if the weather was fine, Phila and I should like it very much, now I am here you must give me leave to stay as long as you can and make yourself comfortable under the idea of my doing so, I have not been to any of the amusements, I cannot give you so daily an account as you did me, let me hear from you on Tuesday, I think Sarah and Hannah had better keep the tent (sic) Beds in airing by sleeping in them as they will both be wanting when we return, I am afraid you have not been able to have anything down to the garden yet, but I hope you will if the weather will allow you.
Phila unites with me in kind love to yourself and all at Stoke and dear George ever
yours truly affectionately
