We are very sorry that you do not come back again to see us this summer - Cousin William has been here from London we like him very much we have not yet been to Fuschenbeck but shall go perhaps in the autumn -

Your affectionate brother

Leicester 17th October 1859 My dear Grandmama

I hope you are quite well I thank you for that little purse which you gave me. I hope you will come down and see us all again and did you know that since you have been away I have sent two letters to aunt Jessie and did you know at Christmas I am coming up to see you and I shall be glad to see Grandpapa and all of you

Your affectionate
Harry Williams
