My dear Sir,

I should have been up with you this morning to breakfast but one of my eyes being a little affected yesterday, I was afraid of pg 681encountering the cold wind at so early an hour, being engaged tomorrow morning I can say no more at present than that I will do my best to be with you at ½ past 9 oC. on Saturday morning, to breakfast; we all regret much having been from home when you and the ladies called. On Saturday we will talk over your kind invitation for which in the mean while accept our united thanks.

  • Believe me to be          
  • faithfully yours      
  • Wm Wordsworth
