Be pleased to accept of the enclosed volume though not smart it may prove useful. Yours sincerely with best respects to you and yours RH. It was by no means unexpected as I did not suppose she was likely to survive the winter which we are informed has been very severe. On her account the change cannot be lamented she has lived quite as long as life was desirable and I trust her sufferings would tend to reconcile you all to her departure. I regret very much not writing earlier to satisfy her anxious wishes but having delayed a few of the first weeks in consequence of many other pressing affairs I have confirmed the same shameful negligence till roused by the double letter just received from your daughter.
Without further apology I must tell you that I left New York on the 16 Sept on the packet ship Hibernia with only seven cabin passengers which of course left us each a double birth. The second day we had a gale that made most of us sick and carried us north of New York more than miles the winds variable and mostly against us during the ten first days, then quite favourable so that we sailed our due course more than miles in eight days as in the beginning so toward the end of our voyage we had another gale off Holyhead the night before our arrival completing however our voyage in 23 days so pleasantly that of life and health be spared I sometimes flatter myself that I may be tempted once more to visit your interesting country.
Open letter to Jeremy Heywood issued by AHA
I was very glad to find most of my relatives and friends so well, my mother better than I expected. My sister and family all pretty well. About two months ago we lost our old former neighbour and friend Mr Marsden he has been gradually sinking during the last two years experiencing frequently great difficulty in walking up the slightest ascent, his life was plain and uniform and his end cheerful and serene. Mr Lum is latterly much altered his memory greatly defective.

I often wish that family was as steady as yours and have not scrupled to say so since my return. I hope they will long remain with or near you to solace your declining years and that your two sons will also by sobriety and diligence equally contribute to tranquilise your remaining days.
I am not aware of any material change that has taken place with regard to it, the widow is still living and I believe in good health. Cousin Heywoods of Little Lever I think are generally doing rather better. John is also married carrys on the business of carpenter and is saving money. Alice the eldest married her mothers servant man and I fear is not doing much good. Mary and her husband have a small farm and also keep a public house.
Robert a journeyman carpenter and I believe more steady than he was some time ago. Your nephew in Heaton has I think given up his farm, he is a returning officer for that district and I occasionally meet him at the Guardian office. It is somewhat remarkable that I had written so far and was obliged to leave to go down to the sessions room where I met your nephew the person just spoken of he pulled out a letter which he had received from you about a month before.
This letter I shall now proceed to answer.
In the first place I rejoice to find that you are all in good health and also that you are proceeding steadily with your farm improvements this is the way to make yourself really independent. I often think of you with considerable pleasure - the nice cottage near a good road with a large barn and other out buildings well stocked - neat wall fences - the heaping up of logs and burning them on a very hot day - jaunting about among your neighbours - going to chapel etc etc all these circumstances with the tales and jokes over there together form very agreeable recollections and I sometimes flatter myself with the hopes of once more renewing such delightful intercourse.
I am glad to find that you have more of your family about you.
John I think has always been engaged with power looms. Ann I expected would have been married before this and in that case would probably have had made and worn the breeches. Hannah perhaps would be satisfied with only making these articles. Mary I hope is still in your neighbourhood tell her I consider the naming of one of her children after me a mark of great respect and another inducement to revisit your interesting country.
James I suppose is frequently coming to see you and of the youngest I can only say that if not tall and strong she is unless greatly changed a droll little housekeeper. And now for some account of myself.

I continue to live in the same house one that we built on the Manchr road near top of the Heights some 15 years ago large enough you will think for a bachelor when I tell you there are seven bed rooms, I have also the garden well stocked with fruit trees, a stream flowing through it with a fountain and fish ponds, also a hot and green house furnishing me with grapes and flowers, the latter occasionally brought down and placed in my parlour window.
There is a cottage for the gardener and also a room where I have occasionally tea parties during the summer. This with a good library, organ etc and a good deal of public business which has latterly been considerably augmented by the appointment to the office of Mayor you will readily suppose fill up my time pretty well.
You will see by the public papers that we are in a very unsettled state in the country. Trade has been a long time in a very depressed condition - hand loom weaving extremely low - most of the cotton mills working short time and two or three in this neighbourhood entirely closed. Garnett Taylor of Astley Bridge near this town has just suspended payment a second time throwing out of employment more than hands. Most of our large foundries and machine shops have only half work. All these circumstances together with the high price of provisions have created many great and general distress.
In addition to all these mishaps we have had a very poor trade during the last three years but thank God I have ample left and shall have a happier mind than those who have acted so fraudulently. I send this letter in a parcel to Philadelphia along with the remittance of a legacy which I have had charge of and shall be happy to undertake the same for you if health and life be spared and you do not feel disposed to come over, but I would recommend one or more of your young folks to revisit their native land and I can only say that I shall be glad to see them at my house.
You say truly that our time on earth will be short and implore it may be devoted to the will of God to which I respond amen at the same time whilst we live we should be active in the discharge of our duties and thus be better prepared for that awful event whenever it shall arrive when we may hope never to part again. Perhaps the most interesting information will be that connected with your relatives, of whom I know little excepting the one allied to our family, I mean Aunt Jane, who I am sorry to say, has been upwards of two years confined to her bed in a state of great imbecility, scarcely knowing her nearest relatives.
She is supported by the rent from the old shop with a small annual allowance from myself. I am sorry not to be able to report favorably of some parts of the family. They are all married and living in the neighbourhood. Mitford is funny, generous, occasionally difficult I'm guessing but a true friend who before her relatively early death, lost a good many of hers: Here is a telling comment: "I'm reading Evelyn's Waugh letters to me, between tears and laughter. It's a very English attribute - the French don't really tease.

It must have been an authors dream working in a bookshop during the war in as much as anything can be a dream job in a city being bombed when most men were called up for service.

Capturing as it does a snapshot of of Nancy's abiding love for books and this bookshop and its owner Heywood Hill whom she corresponds with from Paris over two decades.
Like all things Nancy it captures a world that has almost gone, a world where books were taken seriously and everywhere people chatted about them all the time. Allinson, a relation of the Heywoods. In the s it was sold to a private collector in London.
