Summary:

Gratitude for AK's services as executor for affairs of Caroline L. Herschel. Did not receive AK's Sept. 1848 letter. Give remaining money to [Caroline's servant] Betty, whose pending marriage surprised JH. Thank AK's mother for her letter of 3 Sept. to JH. Happy that AK's brother Georg returned safely from war in Holstein with honors. Hopes peace comes to Europe soon.
