My own Dear Mrs. Ward and Mr. Ward
Many thanks for your kind letter and the enclosed letters.  I am indeed glad to think you consider me worthy of the friendship you express in your welcome letter.  I shall ever remember my visit and your peacefull home.

May God bless you and your Husband.  I am in Oxford ill and in bed.  I have not been out of bed since Fri 26th so am writing this in an awkward position.  Will you forgive me.  Dr. says I am to go back to London soon as possible as I must be amongst those I know and who know my constitution.  There is one thing my dear Mrs. Warde that makes me happy and that is my dear little Ernest is in the Home and Hearts of Christians where I know he is happy and listening to good and not evil.  Thanks be to God for making ye the instrument of his divine will (Preparing a soul) for His kingdom   Kiss baby for me   May God bless ye all   With love
