Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter written from Chapel Field Grove, Norwich to Harriet Thiebault at Boulogne; dated 7 May and postmarked 1832 and signed P. S. Walker.

The writer, probably a woman, enquires after the health of Harriet's daughter who has probably been suffering from whooping cough. She describes a difficult journey from Calais to London, and then to her brother's house, and goes on to give details about her nephews and nieces. She discusses phrenology, and also mentions a report that Algiers is to be ceded to the Turks and asks if there is any truth in this, and if Harriet's husband will be affected. She also discusses mutual acquaintances and the progress of the cholera epidemic in Paris and Abbeville.
