7. Fitzroy Square
Decr. 2. 1852.

Dear Mrs Milnes

Instead of trusting to the slender chance of finding you at home on occasion of a call I venture to write & tell you how grateful Sir Chas. & I feel, in company with many others, to Mr. Milnes for his most beautiful tribute to the venerated Miss Berry.

He has spoken the language of all our hearts, & I feel convinced that each who knew Miss Berry must feel as if a sweet & sacred duty had been fulfilled for them—& fulfilled exactly as each could wish—& as none other could have done—Pray tell Mr. Milnes this—truly my heart seems lightened by his lines—

Hoping that yourself & your little daughter are well whose christening I was sorry not to be able to congratulate you on I beg to remain

Your’s truly
Eliz. Eastlake
