From frost to fire - from fire to frost - Such is the order of the aerial currents here. Haymaking at the last verge. No line from you by script or road - to say whether you are really at Cornish - Cornish! I detest it - So near & so far. I am pained not to be able to reach you & that the responsiy. of coalescing should always be with you. A word pray to say when [crossed out] you will come. That we may prepare - lest there should be no cock a likie in the pot.
