05Jun1857, Mr. Hunt

FALCONHURST, June 5th, 1857.
—Mr. Hunt [FN: The Vicar of the parish, a lifelong friend of the Talbot family] saw me before the evening of yesterday, and again either to-day or Saturday Agnes and I went through the Communion Service with him. My two godparents, Aunt Coque and Uncle Stephen, were there. Aunt Coque gave me yesterday the medallion of a Head crowned with thorns : most beautiful. I have had two such letters : one from Uncle Billy and one from Dove [FN: Her former governess, Mrs. Oxley].
