WriterGeorge IV, King
AddresseeConynham, Maria, Lady
DescriptionWriting of his affection for her: 'Believe me, my Sweet Child, when I tell you, that not only, a Day does not pass, without my thinking of you, but, that you are constantly before me, in my imagination and thoughts' which is a great comfort to him 'in the midst of the many painful & serious moments to which I am doom'd' and that he hopes to see her again soon: 'that I shall very shortly enjoy in reality that pleasure which has for sometime past has unfortunately, only, been ideal. How much I long to kiss you again & to see you, I can not express'. That business has kept him from thanking her for her affectionate welcome on his return to England. He is delighted to hear that she is well and spending her time agreeably but would rather hear from her own lips 'all the variety of little accounts & little anecdotes'. With regards to Elizabeth [her sister] and remembrance to Mme ?Livey should she be in her society at the present moment.
