Loughrigg Holme, Rydal: 23 April, 1850.
My dear Mr. Rogers,
You would be prepared from my last note for the melancholy communication I have now to make. My dear father expired at 12 o'clock this day. He passed away calmly, and almost imperceptibly to those around him.
Believe me, my dear Sir, yours always faithfully,
Edward Quillinan.
