[846] Darling. I find the enclosed note from dear Ned. which I have answered & send down to you. in case you would like to enclose a word to Ned but it must go to night. — I am anxious to know what you have done — whether you have found any room at the Hotel de la ville. or where you are. I thought of running down to you with this note but I am feeling so tired & so pourly. & it is going to rain. so I think it will be safer to wait until to morrow morning when I will come & see for myself. I have just had the enclosed note. which tells you that there

[846 reverse] are 2 rooms at the first house you went into — casa Neolini[?] for which you would pay. 23 +++ francs a day. for a week. for all your own food. nurses & Fannies — & east[?] of rooms. every thing except candles & fire. This I think would be worth considering if you have not made some advantag+++ arrangement with +++. I promised to let them know by 5 o'clock — if you would take them — so if you would like to have them. just run over to the casa Neolini[?]. & arrange for yourself Let me have a word to know what you have done

[847] I love you my darling & cannot bear to have you down there & I up here — you will seely Neds [sic] letter that I seem to have +++ another source of ingratitude in my man Guisippe — for whom I have done so much God bless you – dear darling Kiss my precious baby for me & believe me ever your lovingly fond

Auntie
