Do not my dearest let anything Mama has said prevent you from spending the last few hours you are to be in Wellington with me. We may never see each other in this world again. I am sure if I am to suffer so much as I have done lately it will break my heart. You do not dear know all. Do come dear tonight. I can scarcely write my heart breaks so much.

Your affectionate
S D Strang
