Part of Papers of Richard Monckton Milnes, Lord Houghton

25 Rue Olivier. - Godfrey Bland died this morning around eleven, 'almost without a struggle'. The scene was 'most painful... his poor wife adored him - & all his servants loved him so much'. They discussed his affairs before his death: Godfrey made a will a year ago before the marriage, leaving all to his wife except two hundred pounds to George and the same to Frederick, and something to his servants; he intended to alter it but had no strength left, and has told his wife he trusts her to give George twenty five thousand francs instead of five thousand. She will have a residue of about six or seven hundred a year, which will leave her very comfortable.
Godfrey will be buried as he wished at Père Lachaise, probably on Friday.

Will do all he can to help the 'poor widow'; such scenes as the ones this morning, '& the one at Bawtry - (how is A[nnabel?] poor little girl) - painful tho' they are - tend to make one a wiser and better man'

11 Chichester Terrace, Brighton. - Cannot resist sending Mrs Blackburne a note, as well as one to Mr Milnes 'for my old Crewe feelings do most naturally seek for a vent'; is very glad of Anabel's safety, '& one cannot help glancing at the strong presumption that to Crewe is born an heir in the line we love! May the Boy live & prosper'.
