He has escaped from his troops back to Wilton Lodge and his wife has rewarded him with a new son [Charles Napier]. He notes that an uncle of his wife has recently died and although six years previously he had bequeathed £1500 to Maria, he has since changed his will and has left her nothing. Napier writes that he has his fortune in the shape of a wife and thus should have no further expectations.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Wilton Lodge [Roxburghshire].</p>
