But if you will be so good as to send one Leg & Sausages & Turkey in time for Christmas, & the other Leg & Sausages & Turkey in time for New Year's Day, if it is not too much trouble, we shall be very grateful—& for the marmalade later when made. I hope that you are going on well—& that that abominable cess-pool is being abolished without more nuisance—There has been enough indeed—& dreadfully enough."
