Dec. 5

Dearest A {1}

This is merely a P.S. to my last notelet to beg you to give my sweet & "blessed little Florey" an extra kiss from poor Anty Ett on her birthday,—; & to beg Richee's {2} acceptance, (ultimately for her) of my Copy of the Hungerfordiana, which he told me the other day he had been trying to procure & could not—

There were never more than 100 Copies printed—only 50 for sale—now six & thirty years ago—so no wonder.

He is to keep it, please, for his beautiful little Florey, as she alone bears the dear dear old name.

Neither Amy nor Robin have anything to say to it!—

I trust the sweet Rob does not feel these changes of temperature, & that you are all "flourishing"—

God bless you, my dearest—Yr most devoted


{1} Followed by a heart containing the letters 'a', 'F', and 'R', for Amy, Florence, and Robin.

{2} The spelling of this name is uncertain.

      Pasted after the front free endpaper of a copy of Hungerfordiana: or Memoirs of the Family of Hungerford, collected by Richard Colt Hoare (1823) (Crewe 118.10). The title-page is inscribed at the head, presumably in the hand of the author. 'The Rt Honble. Lord Crewe | RCH.'' On the recto of the front free endpaper are two inscriptions: firstly: 'Henrietta Hungerford Crewe | The gift of her Grandfather— | March 12th 1824—'; and secondly, 'For / | Florence Hungerford Milnes | from her very affectionate | Anty Ett | Dec. 1859.'
