My dear Mother
We are in the midst of the debate on the Address in Reply, the
warmest Point at issue being the conduct of the negotiations with the
Imperial Government on the question for the Retention of the full
Right of Appeal to the Privy Council. One [number] of the Freeman's
Journal came in handy, as I Read the Report of the Remonstrance
of the Irish Bar on the appointment of an English successor
to Lord Morris and Referred to it in a Speech in the House next day.
The baby is getting on well, and is always—as much as a child
can be—in good humor. She has two teeth with a Promise of others.
Mrs. Robert again added to the Population—in this case a girl. The
Bergins have now shifted to Sydney, where the Headquarters of the
Opera Co. are situate[d]. They have weathered financial gales Pretty

Your affectionate Son
