H.M.S. “Beagle”
7 March

Dear Miss O’Reilly

I was so glad to hear you had found your father much better on your return. At last I got some orders yesterday, and I was able to make arrangements for paying off next week. I hope to be able to get up to London on Thursday or Friday at latest, and glad I shall be to have done with the Beagle thing. I’m glad to say the sailors have nearly all recovered from influenza and returned from hospital. But they mostly seem to have coughs and colds like their captain. I cant shake mine off. I dined with the Seymours last Saturday. Mrs. Mike’s sister Lady Carmichael & her husband were staying – they are very old Scotch friends of mine. It is most horridly cold and raw down here, I hope you have it milder in the West. I shall try and get away in to the country this Saturday to Monday. You must let me know please when you are coming to town again

Yours ever sincerely

Harry Stanhope
