From Nelson to his Daughter, Horatia

"Victory", October 19, 1805

My dearest angel,

I was made happy by the pleasure of receiving your letter of September 19, and I rejoice my dear Lady Hamilton, who most dearly loves you. Give her a kiss for me. The Combined Fleets of the enemy are now reported to be coming out of Cadiz, and therefore, I answer your letter, my dearest Horatia, to mark to you that you are ever uppermost in my thoughts. I shall be sure of your prayers for my safety, conquest, and speedy return to dear Merton and our dearest good Lady Hamilton. Be a good girl; mind what Miss Connor says to you.

Receive, my dearest Horatia, the affectionate parental blessing of your father,
