My dear Nellie -
I also am only just back - arrived yesterday! - and am off again directly - though where I don't as yet know -
Impossible though for me to come to dinner with you - for I cannot easily dine out yet!
[p. 2] So you will just have to take my love to my dear good charming Sis and tell her to write me another of those extraordinary letters of hers which were always delightful to read, and now are amazing to look at! - /
And so for the time Adieu! and write me an account of what happens -
I am sorry to hear that Mrs Sophy is not quite so well - Present to her my compliments & best wishes
