In this letter, Charlotte Maitland talks of her illness and thanks Charlotte West a present she sent her. She discusses the situation in �that dreadful Ireland', where Charlotte West is currently residing, and the French landing there, expressing confidence that the British army will repel them effectively. She also mentions a visit of her husband ('the General') to the West household and also a letter from her son August at the front, relieved that all is well with him. Transcribed by students on the Bodleian Student Editions programme.
