MS Mrs Katherine Wykes-Sneyd1

My dear Henrietta

You have a very nice set of questions this time and I think the best to choose among them will be the distinguished Christian characters of Milan, and the monuments, but I think you should call them sepulchral monuments, as I suppose you mean only those that mark the actual place of the remains – as I imagine you don’t wish to include the Monument par excellence. I think you may allot four sheets to Milan and six to the Monuments.

Did I send you this advertisement before.2 I hope you will take the thing in – it is in good hands, and I think will have a good deal that is pleasant and useful in it.

I am glad you have your aunts; though yours will be a sad subdued Christmas, it is such a comfort to be all together.3

your affectionate

Mother Goose
