Elizabeth Longsdon (snr) to James Longsdon (snr), 5 August 1809
"My dear Sir".
Their daughter Katharine has been unwell. She and Katharine had a very pleasant dip in the sea this morning and she regrets there will only be another one or two. Mrs Morewood feels no better, neither from the air or sea bathing. She wants to leave and does not expect to stay beyond Monday week 14th at most. Mrs Wright will not be here until Monday or Tuesday and they want a few days with her. If alone Mrs Longsdon would have felt it her duty to their dear girl to stay a full two months because she is now fast gaining strength. She adds a note on Sunday, saying she fears Elizabeth's health will suffer from confinement to the house and urges her husband to take her outside. She will leave soon in order that she and Kate do travel home alone.
