My dearest Marianne-
Raby will have told you that my dear home companion’s long patience has ended.

She was really dying ever since last evening, though the end did not come till one o’clock to-day, holding my hand, and asking Henry’s prayers all the time till consciousness was gone, not many minutes before the end. I do not think in the relief I feel the difference it will make to me.

Your strawberries were really welcome to me—one of the few things she could take.-

Your most affectionate
