A rather interesting and curious letter from a lady who was resident in Livermere Hall in Norfolk, in the mid 19th century (1852). She is writing to a gentleman named Andrew West, it may be her brother, boyfriend or fiance, and begging him to return home from Massachusetts, the United States of America because she is unwell. Certainly from the style of the letter, the grammatical mistakes, particularly the misspelt words, she appears to have some kind of education and may have been servant at the Hall. Interestingly, in the final sentence she asks him to stay away from the water, which may be an indication that he has been previously involved in some kind of tragedy or accident at sea.
