My dear John Pybus
I duly received yours of the 1st. - I notice that you will not get away until the 7th. so that I flatter myself this will reach you before you quit Mr. Temples on Wednesday - the Cholera is fast passing away - the returns of deaths are:
The Mondays return contains several who died sometime previously so that I believe the no. who actually died on Monday did not exceed 9 - Hannah is quite well ; she & I dined with Daggett on Sunday - he was at St. Nicholas again so I hope he is coming round - Geldard has been confined to bed but is better - I have not yet seen Mr. Scott or Mr. Alexander - I hope you will drop me a line before sailing from Southampton - I am glad you are in such good spirits - remember me to all at Bruntsfield House.
Henry Ingledew P.S. James Henry it appears left without giving any instructions as to Moultons Charity - no money left out for last Sunday - & no notice given of meeting of Trustees today - in fact no one knows anything about the matter.
