EMS glad that JS had arrived at Southampton.Hard winds at Blachford, persuaded to stay there so have declined an invitation to Crocadon by Miss S. Caryton Driving 25 July at Dock, which could not be left before 1 August. Lady Rogers offered to take EMS to the Assize ball so EMS would then be at Franklyn. Marma should write to Lady R to allow EMS to go. They could spend a day at Crocadon if their visit to Southampton was postponed. EMS understood JS would be taking 3 maids to Southampton; the lodgings were inconvenient as women of house clean the rooms & dress the meat. Harriett & EMS would do without a maid while in lodgings. & then take a little girl from the Charity School, as Kitty stayed with the children. One maid should do at Southampton, the Rogers took one to Bath. Rememberance to Capt. Bruce. Sir Frederick (Rogers) would be happy to meet Capt. Bruce if he had paid him a visit with Mr. Peter Ilbert.
