Maria's letter received a month previously. E.C. had been at Dock for 10 days with the Miss Fanshawes; at the Duke of Clarence's birthday ball, danced with Mr. Dering. Letter from Jane Curteis, returning in a week to Queen Square. E.C. considered a prophetess, brother expected in a week. Sorry Harriet had been ill. Louise Bridges' 3 elder sisters soon to marry rich gentlemen but Sir Brook was very poor. Mrs. Mascal had a daughter 3 weeks old. Thursday week they were all going to Mrs. Helyar's ball. While at the Commisioner's they went aboard the 'Illustrious'. A large party. E.C. was ill. They gave her brandy, teased ever since. Susan F(anshawe) much grown, but too talkative, 3 older sisters & mother, and generally disliked. Sorry to hear by Harriet's letter that Miss Hering did not return.
