My sweet friend. In a desperate hurry. I write just one word to say that I shall be in Sheffield on business on Tuesday. next. The Burtons [?] will meet me (my mother & myself) to take us to some silver plate workers to +++ my sisters plated goods for housekeeping. I shall be very busy all the day. but I shall leave the station
[2316 reverse] at Sheffield for Masbro. & the north at 4.50. P.M. will you come to the station & go over to Masbro: with me where I am to meet a friend who comes from London & who brings. a small bundle of things. which I have had put up for you as patterns. an old body or two which will give you an idea about making bodies. Dont [sic] Think I have neglected you. in not writing.
I have been. so very much
 engaged this last week. That I have hardly known whether I have been upon my head or my heels. as you can well believe. Susan was married on Wednesday. & I have been more nervous & ill than I can describe to you.
God bless you dear & believe me ever faithfully
Your attached friend
