Summary:

Happy to hear that [new Sydney mint] is going well. JH confined with painful illness since Mar. 1855; still unable to walk or stand upright without support. Aluminium may be used in coins, but JH doubts it will replace iron in pots and pans. War is ended, but people worry about further Russian aggression.
