Villa de Camp de droite, Boulogne | Thursday Fifth October 1854

My Dear Mitton

Wednesday the Eleventh will do perfectly well for us, as we have no intention of returning home until the following week. My term here expires on the Nineteenth.

Therefore, on Wednesday the Eleventh, we shall expect you.4 I hope the weather may be sufficiently bright to give you a fair idea of the lightness of the air. But it has been so extraordinarily fine that we must anticipate a little wet. It blew a gale of wind last night and is very lowering this morning, so I hope we may get it over before you come.

  • Kind regards from all. | Ever Faithfully
  •                                                          CD.
