Broadstairs, Kent. | Tuesday Twenty Third September | 1851.

My Dear Stone.

Mr. Cardale (I take it) couldn't very well make duplicates of that document,2 without knowing, first, that we would sign it. I assume it to be quite sure that he will make one now for each of us with his signature attached. If he should not do so in a day or two, I shall have no hesitation whatever in asking him for that exchange. But I think it would have been sharp practice to assume that he was going to take any but the plain and usual business-course.

O Heaven, such a morning!—The brightness of it!—
