H More to/ Mrs Hole/ June 30 1815.
Forget my dear and ever dear Sally Horne? How could you my dear Madam think it possible? No, believe me, you still retain in our hearts the place you began to hold (at least in mine) at three years old.
Truly happy shall we be to see you amp; Your Sister; a ,daughter of yours you cannot doubt will be affectionately received. You
must come and spend a long day. Mrs. Hyde
will have told you that my poor Sister Betty,
Give my love to Mrs. Hyde, and tell her as hers was but a venial offence I shall give her a full Absolution as if I were of the Church of Rome.
More had first met Sally Horne Hole when Horne was three: More composed a poem, ‘An Heroick Epistle’ on the occasion. (Read online.)
Sally Horne Hole had two elder sisters. There is disagreement over their identities.
Hole had one daughter who is recorded: Felicia Elizabetha Hole (1797-1888).
