The Warwick's are to go to Weymouth but Harpur herself will not undertake an excursion this summer.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Harpur also mentions the news of Napoleon Bonaparte being held prisoner. The accounts she has had of him are 'strange'. Specifically that he believes he would have been allowed to 'reside in England'.
