2113.  EBB to John Kenyon

As published in The Brownings’ Correspondence, 11, 201.


Tuesday. 5. oclock or earlier. [25 November 1845] [1]

My stupidity prevented my seeing at the first glance over your note, that twelve oclock tomorrow would be .. or might be .. “best” for Miss Bayley. You must have thought my reason for naming two, still a worse one than simple stupidity. Let it be twelve of course!– I spoke at random in all ways when I said two,––& will you be kind as usual & explain me into ordinary civility & gratitude?

Dearest Mr Kenyon’s

Affecte cousin
