[This continued from a letter to Anna Austen begun on Saturday, 9th September]
Sunday 18th– I am very glad dear Anna, that I wrote as I did before this sad Event occurred. I have now only to add that your G. Mama does not seem the worse now for the Shock.– I shall be very happy to receive more of your work, if more is ready; & you write so fast, that I have great hopes Mr D. will come freighted back with such a Cargo as not all his Hops or his Sheep could equal the value of.
Your Grandmama desires me to say that she will have finished your Shoes tomorrow & thinks they will look very well;– and that she depends upon seeing you, as you promise, before you quit the Country, & hopes you will give her more than a day. — Yrs affec:ly
