151. Robert Bloomfield to Mary Ann
Bloomfield, 23 December 1804*
Honington. Dec. 23d. 1804
George is here this afternoon
and will ride [word missing: MS torn] old Horse back to Bury which I have lodged n[MS torn]
Sapiston as well as myself since we
came here. I rode on Friday to Thetford and saw Kitty, but I have not yet been to
Euston nor to Troston for my Mother I doubt is growing
worse. She is very weak, has passed no urine since Wednesday night her body much
swelled. she has no power to swallow food, and lives on a few spoonfuls of Broth
and water: to night she must have leeches on her temples, and we have a
glimmering hope of amendment.
I write now to Mr Park
about the portrait— 
Pray give love and remembrance to the children and to your Father. Let Nat know how things go here. I
shall not leave my Mother until
I see some alteration, as it must appearantly soon take place.
Tell me how you go on.
