been there with some of the noblest of God's trees. It seemed [wicked?] to see them coming down the river to be sawed up & turned into money & it must have gone to your heart far more after having seen them growing. I have been a long time in answering your letter, but we have beenmoving our house, we are living in London now, I feel so lonely there away from the trees & flowers & God's works, but I shall often go down to Blisworth, & if you write to me there letters will always find me, as my brother lives there now. I wonder if you are in California now, or if you have gone off exploring
