Letter from (Sir) John Franklin to Ann Flinders (1 of 5) (FLI27) Page 1

        Mrs Flinders
To .
    at Mrs Tylers
    Walker Gate

PS I worried last night and scarcely yet recovered the agitation
of mind which the visit occasioned —

                Mavis Enderby October 1st 1810

My dear Madam

      I should not have delayed so long, offering
my warmest & sincere congratulations on the happy
event of Capt Flinders's release and the consequent
alleviation of ^ which your mind must have received; had
I not found Mr Standert poƒseƒsing much fuller infor-
mation; had written the evening on which the
information was known in London & until my
call there I was ignorant of your addreƒs.

Believe me Madam the news of his arrival at the
Cape gave to every one who knew him in London
infinite gratification – to none more than myself;
my feelings ever were most alive to his Sufferings
& exclusive of the interest I neceƒsarily must take
in his welfare – I feel and ever will cherish
the strictest friendship & sincerity for his goodneƒs
and constant attention to me
His arrival in this country may be soon expected. –
promotion I should suppose will immediately
be given him, indeed I trust every {step} will
