London 30 May 1876

My dear Willy

I have just written
a few most sad lines to our
Severely afflicted friend John -
How awful - his dear Wife no
more. I have been and am still
Stupefied and Can't realize his
irreparable loss - I went to
[Enmistown?] yesterday to bring
his son willy here to live with me
when I learned with a shudder that
he had gone home as his dear Mother
was not expected to live, however
I kept hoping 'till I got a telegram
from H. a. Y. what a frightful
How this is to friend John and
his dear children! I can yet
hardly realize his dreadful
loss ___
I reached here on
Evening 27th having left Paris
in the moring at 9 30 Am -
Stayed but one day in Paris -
I only left Nice on the 18th and
I slept that Night a Savona, left
at Turin next day Via the Mount
Cenis Tunnel I reached aix les
bains when I expected to find Mr
Stott but did not, he being still in
London and preparing to go "aix",
remained there four days - selpt a
night at Dijon and next say - Paris -
So you see I have taken it easy
and have met here the first really
steady warm weather of the season
I hope I am thanful to say to you
that I have picked up strength on
my journey - I propose leaving on
Thursday morning for C at Kenson Esq
Saint ann's Road
to which address I will thank you
to post to me up to and including
Saturdays mail Express - I intend to leave
for Dublin on Monday next, if I can,
Guy and the Saundry family are
all well and they have had good
accounts from their son. Satisfactory I
think. I trust most truly that
you will send me, to at Kensons,
good accounts of Jane. the baby
and the other children -
I don't know if I shall go to America
I would rather not - I am fairly
tired of knocking about and detest
the sight of my trunk
With warm love to Jane and the
young folk your Mother and annie
Very faithfully Yours
Rowland [Roland?] Redmond
