16Nov1865, Meriel Expecting No. 5

CHATSWORTH, November 16th, 1865.
—Dear old Meriel and John came. She looks very well, though, alas ! No. 5 hopes to arrive next June. It is a sad trial to the poor old thing, who would stop very willingly at 4 ; and would have been satisfied to have no children at all, which is all but inconceivable to me.
