23 May, 1839

Aunt Joanna's two youngest children 1 seem so delicate that F.N. does not reckon upon their promised visit at Lea Hurst with the whole family as at all certain; the Nicholsons are staying, and she and Marianne are working hard at their music; they have been to the Opera; they dined at Mrs. Willian Evans's the other day and met the family, the Babingtons, the Macaulays and the Gisbournes; they have a very nice house at Kensington Gore; they have seen Lady Sitwell and Mrs. Gaskell several times; London is very full; the Queen is very gay and goes almost every night to the opera; tonight there is a grand illumination all over London in honour of her birthday, and the lamps are putting up now in front of our hotel; sends her love to Aunt Evans.
