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.
Tell me how you go on.
