Hartley, Miss

Hannah More to Mrs Hartley, 7 July [1826]

I was much disappointed at not having the pleasure of seeing you on Wednesday, as your letter gave me room to expect. Tho your obliging letter was dated the 2d. of July I did not receive it till tuesday afternoon too late to answer it by post. Your not coming on Wednesday I ascribed to the violent thunder Storm. I then expected you yesterday and in that expectation did not dine till four o clock. I shall be very glad to see You and * to take a family dinner on Tuesday /next the Eleventh/ if it suits you. Pray remember me kindly to Miss Hartley* I hope she will be of your party. I write in haste not to lose the Post. I remain
