My Beloved Angee,
Have just arrived and a post leaves in a few minutes so thought I would drop a line – had a nice time in Bristol with dear Arundel and the children & Albert, Lizzie, &c &c &c and very pleasant ride in a first class carriage with my 3rd ticket all the way here – God graciously comfort you on every side my beloved Angee and believe me.
Being very affectionate Husband
