    Informs her cousins of her surprising decision to decline the offer of marriage to the dull and wealthy 'Lord Poppy', and her subsequent attachment to a surgeon. She explains that 'little I[mogene]'s now link'd to mortar and pestle' and 'dotes on the title of M.R.C.S', and although her beloved does not appear in Debrett 1802, she is looking forward to having her name on the brass plate of Dr Brown and travelling to the 'erudite soil' of Scotland.
