8 September 1798
Good God what a victory! Never, never was there any thing half so glorious half so complete. How I glory in the honour of my Country and my Countryman. I walk and tread on air with pride, feeling I was born on the same land with the victor Nelson and his gallant band.
My dress from head to foot is a la Nelson - even my shawl is Blue with gold anchors, my ear rings are Nelson's anchors, in short we are beNelsoned all over!
For God's sake my dear, dear Sir, come to Naples soon. We are preparing your
apartment for you. I hope it will not be long for Sir William and I am so
impatient to see and embrace you.
