My darling Kathleen

How glad I was to have yr letter I cannot tell you it was a real joy only you dont speak of my friend & I do want to know how he is & what he is doing. I am always in the same rooms the same place & never can walk a step some times I am rather weary but God knows best & I have many mercies. Oh how I wish you were here & that I cd see yr lovely face again it wd do me good. yr commission(?] is to be done tomorrow & I hope all right but really things do change so now a days & I cant go into shops myself of course but dear if ever you do want anything do send to me . if I can I wd gladly do it for you. I am sure you have been very interested in all Irish news but has it not been dreadful & will they ever come to make peace terms possible it is too sad & they are impossible people to deal with . I am so afraid you have not seen ¬∑Mr . Gough that he did not go yr way but I did not know exactly where he was going & if near to you, I hope his tour has done him good for he was very poorly before he left. he had his boy with him was a gt pleasure & I hear they have enjoyed it very much & are to be home next month, sailing either Sept . 3 0d or Oct 4th from Quebec & enjoyed it intensely I only hope he wont have bothers at home but all be peace & quiet One of the curates has married a Marquise des Rochers. was a nurse during the war, rather a nice little thing quite young too funny & she keeps her name . I wonder what Mr. Gough will say the husband Mr . Wardell simply adores her!! Poor May Potter is awfully ill I fear she may not recover wd be a dreadful loss for the family. Evelyn is so much better now & can manage to walk now with two sticks slowly &I hope he will recover from this Flebitis came from the effects of his terrible accident he had gone home again now but has to be very careful . Is there ever any hope of your corning to England again & Jack & his wife I do hope . & Baby John ! too dear little fellow he seems to be give his Mother my kind love & Jack too. I have not been able to get the little shoes yet. [?] is getting them he had lovely blue & pink ones. The price of them is 14/ I will keep the 6/ till you tell me you want another pair & would you like best the blue ones they are all lovely colors. the Pink ones rather dark & bright but for a boy I suppose blue is best. I will make up the difference so please dont any shillings. Harry keeps pretty well I hear but wont come up here it is sad. Lord c. is very well & golfing a gt deal at St. Andrews , North Berwick. Kathleen dearest I cannot write a great deal so must stop. Adele Stanhope has been so poorly but is better now & goes Harrogate 1″r. October I do hope will cure her I am sorry about Miss Gilbert can I find out anything about her
With ever devout love

D. Chesterfield Dieu te garde
