Frank Leward: Memorials

Miss Herbert to Mrs. Leward

Miss Herbert to Mrs. Leward

The Glades, Claydon, Feb.3, 1833.

My dear Sister,—We hope the two boys reached you safely. We were so sorry you could not be with us this Christmas, and still more so for the cause, and we pray dear Francis' health will soon improve, and that you will both visit us later on, and bring dear little Arthur with you. The boys were very good on the whole; only of course Frank was sometimes rather noisy, Arthur always good and quiet. Do you not think Frank ought to go to a good public school soon ? It is best for boys, especially of his nature, although I know how deeply you would feel it at first; yet the separation must come sooner or later. Then I am afraid he is rather rough with Arthur. Mamma is better; she keeps up wonderfully for her age. I am sure Francis must feel this attempt of wicked men to destroy our country and Constitution. With best love to him and to you, dear sister, I am, yours very affectionately,

Jane Herbert.

P.S.—We hear Mr. Wilberforce is very ill, but what a consolation to him to see his great work at last completed.
