I wish for you, want you, Byron mine, more every hour.
All my confidence has returned – never to sink again, I believe…
Our parents are very cheerful and well pleased with thoughts of your return.
My father says “I must have my hair cut before he comes back.”….
Come, come, come – to my heart.
P.S. – My uncle is in London… He makes himself sick with anxiety about us, so great is his affection for me.
I am his dearest object in the world…
