My dear Mr. Marsh

I see by the paper that Lord Acton is reported to be in Florence. I want to get a note to him, but I do not know his address. I venture, therefore, to enclose it to you, and ask you to have it sent to him,--and I trust you will excuse me for giving you this trouble.


----------

The prospect for France seems to me to grow darker & darker. When the compress of war is removed there are likely to be such civil troubles as will make the foreign invasion seem but a slight evil.
-------------------------------- Page ------------------------------------------

I wish I could hope that you might be able to send us favorable accounts of Miss Crane's condition.

I am glad to say that the invalid members of my household are doing well.

My Mother and Sisters and Mrs. Norton desire me to give their kindest regards to Mrs. Marsh & yourself, & I am, as always, with great respect,

Sincerely Yours

C. E. Norton.

Lord Acton's address would doubtless be known at the Foreign Minister's office.--as he seems to be -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- in Florence on a diplomatic errand;--or certainly by the British Minister.
