We sent letters home from here July 21st by Capt. Symons directly to Boston—it was as soon as possible after our arrival; among them Henry sent a letter to his father, & I to Mary, Sam & Anne.
I was quite delighted to receive a letter from Mary & Sam—hope they will write me often.
Since our last letters we have removed our lodgings to No. 5.
Clara Sodra Kyko Gatan.
We have more rooms but not as good ones as in the Droteninggatan.
We have made some very pleasant acquaintances here.
July 15th we dined at Mr. Arfwedson's —the father of the gentleman who married an American lady.
Mr. A—resides at Liston Hill in the Park—he has a little English cottage, built by Sir Robert Liston, formerly English minister to this court.
It is a sweet spot —the Maler flows almost directly beneath the windows of the cottage—a little flower garden is upon its banks, & a fine grove of trees in the rear of the cottage.
Mr. Arfwedson is a fine old man—his wife has been dead several years.
