Charles Spurgeon’s Letters-Letter 95


BOULOGNE, Dec. 23.


Your noble husband is sitting before the fire on one chair, with his legs up on another, and as it seemed to be a pity to disturb His Royal Highness, I offered to write to you for him, and he accepted the offer. I am happy to say that our mutually respected and beloved Joseph is much better, and will, I hope, arrive at Park Lodge in first-rate condition about 7 or 8 o’clock on Friday. The sea is in an excited condition, and I fear none of us will need an emetic when crossing to-morrow; but it will be better arranged than if we had the management of it, no doubt.

I am very much obliged to you for lending me your worser half so kindly. He is a dear, kind., generous soul, and worth his weight in angels any day. I hope all the young folk axe well. My dear wife says you are bonnie, which is vastly better than being bony.

My kindest regards are always with you and yours. Pray accept my love, and I daresay His Royal Highness, the King of Little Britain, would send his also; but he is so much engrossed in reading the Standard that I have not asked about it.

Yours ever truly,
