Devonshire Terrace | Saturday Twelfth November | 1842.

Dear Mrs. Thomson.

It would have given me great pleasure to vote for the lady in whom you are interested, if I had not already pledged myself (being assured of her capability) to support another candidate who is a near relation of Miss Edgeworth's, and who, therefore, has a strong claim on my attention and regard.
