My dear John Pybus
Your letter of the 24th. Announcing your arrival at Deptford in the evening of the previous day reached Newcastle whilst I was absent on Circuit which only ended on Saturday evening it gave me great pleasure to hear of your safe arrival in England and of your being well in health I hope you will long be in the sunshine of its favour Although the sea appears to agree with you I am not surprised at your being glad that the voyage is ended.
With respect to your admission as an Attorney , my wish is that you should pass your Examination as soon as practicable I had expected your notices would have been repeated so that you might have availed yourself of the first occasion after arriving in England . You must therefore read up and prepare yourself for the first examination after the expiration of the requisite notice it would be the extreme of folly to wait until November .
As Hilary Term ends on the 31st. Instant and Easter Term does not begin until 10th. April , I think you would make as much progress at Newcastle as in London during the vacation . Tell James Henry that I will send him some needful tomorrow or Wednesday Mr. Outhwaite spent the day at Lovaine Place yesterday and he and Margaret have gone to dine with Mr. Geldard this afternoon . Hannah is staying with Elizabeth and she spent the day with us yesterday . I fancy you will have called upon John & Jos Ingledew ; if you have not & are about to call , tell them and Miss Emma that Hannah is quite well .
Ellen Watson after a residence in Lovaine Place for several months , left on Wednesday last I understand . Daggett will shortly have a Parliamentary Election to conduct , Mr. Blackett being about to accept the Chiltern Hundreds . Mr. Geo Ridley ( abrother of Sir Matthew ) has published an address to the electors there is no other candidate in the field as yet We have had a visit from your Aunt Margaret & James they left on Friday they are both well & hearty . Let me hear from you from time to time .
