Dear Miss O’Reilly

Thanks for yours. Please be firm when you are staying with Lady Seymour & say that you are engaged to dine at 26. or whatever night suits you. As you dont say which days you will be in town, please name your own, as my mother & I will be there all this week & I have no engagements. As you propose going to Mrs. Burroughes on the 29th, I suppose it will be kind of Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. I am also going out of town Saturday to Monday. Dant tell Mrs. Burroughes. I spent from Friday night till Sunday in the most awful tortures. An acute attact came on in the right shoulder. I had’nt had one for 6 years. its too disgusting. The pain has nearly gone but of course the arm’s like a lump of lead & will be for a time. I shall have to go for some more baths. Judging by the weather here, it ought to be quite mild at Folkestone. Lets know your night please to dine with us.

Yours very sincerely

Harry Stanhope
