To Mrs Sydney Inwood Jones (1808-82), the niece of famous novelist Lady Sydney Morgan, on recent travels and about having bought a new residence in London: "I received your card for the 12th too late to avail myself of it. We returned from our long travel a few weeks ago and have since been staying with my brother in law at Hampstead. But we shall soon be nearer to you & to our friends in the West. We have bought No. 45 Kensington Park Gardens, and intend to get into it about November [...]".
