From Sarah Owen [27–30 September 1831]
My dear Charles,
You see I am as good as my word, or rather Mr Baker is, for I enclose the promised Pin,1 the hair is genuine, & I am much flattered in the idea that it is destined to accompany you round the world—
We all felt very melancholy after your departure on Sunday, I do not know what Woodhouse will do without you for so long, but I hope & trust we may both meet with success in our respective new careers, & live to meet here again very very often; remember your promise about No.1, Belgrave St.2 & pray think of me in the mean time, & write whenever you have an idle half hour. I assure you my parting promise to you shall be most religiously kept, & you may expect a true & correct account from the Pen of the Sufferer herself—
I am so glad you have a short reprieve for the sake of your Family, though perhaps you are not so well pleased with the delay—
God bless you, my dear Charles, believe that whenever I may change my title, I shall always remain your very sincere & affectionate Friend | Sarah—
She encloses a pin with "genuine hair" and is flattered that it will go around the world with CD.
