From Queen Victoria to the Princess Royal – Windsor Castle, 27 November 1861

Many, many thanks for your dear letter of the 23rd. As you do not mention it yourself – I hope you are all right again and that the rash is past. Dearest Papa has written to you that he is not well – and so he is – but thank God! unberufen1 not one of his bad, old attacks – but a cold with neuralgia – a great depression which has been worse these last 3 days – but I hope will be much better tomorrow. The sad part is – that this loss of rest at night (worse than he has ever had before) was caused by a great sorrow2 and worry3 which upset us both greatly – but him especially – and it broke him quite down; I never saw him so low. Please God, this will soon be past and the heavy cloud dissipated.4
