My Dear Alexander
I was very sorry to
hear from Lady Caledon that
you had had a return of your
[lumbago?] & was laid up with
it [indivttand?], until I got
your letter on Saturday [last?]
I was not [aware?] of your having
come back to London, I [sincerely?]
trust not the change of climate
& the comforts of home will soon
have the effect of relieving you
W. J. Alexander [Esq?] from
from (sic) suffering and away since,
I did not know your Northern
address nor did I care to trouble
you with Mr [Moty's?] [during?] &
threatening letter My part of his
duplicate reached [me?] & I copy
the answer I wrote to it, the
shorter I could make it I thought
the better - I am glad to find your
reply is in the [same?] [tone?] and I
quite agree with what you [answer?]
to him, that in future it is [going?]
through his solicitors you can
communicate with [him?] after a
[Person?] [Resorts?] In [unmanly?] threat
that he will resort to the publication
of matters "which will be anything
but pleasing" to the Widow of his
"bosom friend" no further direct
communication can well be held
with him - at first I was [Killom?]
to allude to this in any letter but
afterwards considered that any
[lecture?] I might read him would
be but thrown away - Your Sept
on [Conhs?] [Mo?] for N [Jrns?] [dividends?]
œ204.9.11 came safe to hand
and I lodged it today with [pay?]
broken for [riverland?] in
[Consols?] - Lady Caledon has a
delightfully calm night [for?]
her passage across the Channel
I hope to see her in the [Morning?]
ready for her journey to the North.
The railway being now
continuous [to?] Caledon leaves
this at one o'clock she will be
at home for dinner - We must
take care that in the New Reform
Bill no proposition shall be introduced
which will have the
effect of [J Wisuop---?] [N?] Caledon
interest in [Tyrone?] - When I know
more about what is [intended?] I
will write fully to you to get your
opinion and to give you such information
as I may be able to collect that you
may [bring?] your knowledge of the people
in power and influence to the support
of "the Caledon [Interest?]"- I am very thankful
today that I know very much better than
I could have hoped to be & Eliza
desires me to acknowledge your kinship
& [say?] [she?] [is?] quite well - very faithfully
Yours J. S. Langly
