    鉴:昨接哈福德郡来信,借悉先生目前正什心烦虑乱,不胜苦悲。不佞与拙荆闻之,无论对先生个人或尊府老幼,均深表同情。以不佞之名份职位而言,自当聊申悼惜之意,何况与尊府为葭莩,益觉责无旁贷。夫癸诸情理,此次不幸事件自难免令人痛心疾首,盖家声一经败坏,便永无清洗之日,伤天下父母之心,孰有甚于此者?早知如此,但冀其早日夭亡为幸耳。不佞只有曲尽言辞,备加慰问,庶几可以聊宽尊怀。据内人夏绿蒂言,令媛此次淫奔,实系由于平日过分溺爱所致,此尤其可悲者也。唯不佞以为令媛年方及笄,竟而铸成大错,亦足见其本身天性之恶劣;先生固不必过于引咎自责也。日前遇咖苔琳夫人及其千金小姐,曾以此事奉告,夫人等亦与不佞夫妇不所同感。多蒙夫人与愚见不谋而合,认为令媛此次失足,辱没家声,遂使后之攀亲者望而却步,殃及其姐氏终生幸福,堪虑堪虑。瓴念言及此,不禁忆及去年十一月间一事,则又深为庆幸,否则木已成舟,势必自取其辱,受累不浅。敬祈先生善自宽慰,任其妄自菲薄,自食其果,不足怜惜也。(下略)[/cn]
