[Postmark: 28 July 1845]
How must I feel, & what can or could I say even if you let me say all? I am most grateful, most happy—most happy, come what will!
Will you let me try and answer your note to-morrow .. before Wednesday when I am to see you? I will not hide from you that my head aches now; and I have let the hours go by one after one– I am better all the same, and will write as I say– “Am I better” you ask! Yours I am, ever yours my dear friend
