[99] quite renovated you. I [was] delighted to receive a second letter from Mrs. L[ongfellow], in a p[ackage] of letters which reached us a few days since. She is very kind to write me, & I shall not fail to write her, as often as possible, while absent.

With this you will receive a letter for Aunt Lucia. I shall answer Mrs. L's letter very soon.

Henry has become quite learned in the Swedish, & can already translate Danish. He is studying Icelandic also, as I presume he has told you. He is in fine health & spirits.

With many wishes for your health & my Mother's, & with much respect & affection for you both—I am as ever

Your affectionate

Mary—— 1

1 [On outside of letter.] September 28. I have written by the same ship that brings you this. H. W. L. Also a letter to George.

2 The journal is missing from the Ms., having doubtless been retained by the father. A long extract from it will be found in the Life, i. 216.
