PRIVATE LETTERS OP
one to read. I must close for the present. My letters no doubt are disjointed, and in truth I never get any time to settle to one without interruption ; in the mornings and in the evenings I dislike writing. I have now given you all my news, and will close with every kind wish, adding a few lines when the " Royalist " is at the mouth of the river.
Yours, dear Jack, ever affectionately,
J. Brooke.J. Brooke.
