SABINE-41578-1.jpg
SABINE (Sir Edward, 1788-1883, General, Astronomer with Ross & Parry on Arctic Expeditions, President of the Royal Society)

Fine Long Letter Signed to Mrs Miller saying it is good of her to "wish us to pay you a longer visit, and we should be but too happy to meet your kind wishes. I must attend Lord Rosses' Soirees on the 3rd & 17th and Mr Owen's lecture on the 8th and the B. Assoc. Council ... But I think I can manage to postpone both Council of the R.S. and Committee on the Govt Grant till after the 17th which would set us free to accompany Mr Miller back to Cambridge ... and remain to the afternoon of the 17th ... we shall hold ourselves accordingly engaged unless you write us word of any changes and perhaps Mr Miller will be able to connect with us how we may know the time of his return ... and join him by a particular train and the Station. I have had the pleasure of writing this letter to you because Mrs Sabine said it was my duty. She has been more particular in shifting such little responsibilities upon - what she calls - the right shoulders to bear them, since (in accordance with the act of Parliament to that effect) I ventured in the Census paper to write myself down as 'Head of the Family'. May all my acts of headship be equally agreeable with the present! ...", 4 sides 8vo., Woolwich, 25th April
