[n.d.]My dear Caroline
The Genl has returned & is arranging a lock for you He says he is perfectly willing to accord you all he would have done 20 years ago but what he could have sent you then a much brighter lock of hair, thinks little Rob looks like his grand papa & hopes he may far excel his name's sake in everything I send you all the photoigraphs I can collect. Rooney is very indifferent & does not do him justice for he is a fine looking fellow 6 feet 2 inches. The girls have not had their photographs taken waiting for a better artist.
Again farewell Yrs
