The Following is a transcript of a letter to Mr Hale found in a Mary Hooper book purchased in the USA by Roy Hooper

 

13th July

Dear Mr Hale,

I fully agree with you that the title is very ugly- surely it is not the one I gave the article! Please choose one of these- “The Domestic Education of Ladies” “Notes on Domestic Education” “Household Management” “Notes in Domestic Learning”.

I saw your name at the funeral of your old friend on Saturday. You did indeed run a serious risk in such weather. I do hope you have not taken any harm.

I have been so sorry not to be able to come and see Mrs Hale- it has been simply impossible to manage Thursday after the great fatigue of the lectures on Wednesday. Last Thursday I was in bed- very ill all day.

On Friday I go to----------- and, even if I had not preparations to make I dare not take a journey tomorrow.

I do hope dear Mrs Hale is keeping well and with my kind regards to you both herein

Yours Faithfully

Mary Hooper
