Tuesday evening. [16 December 1845]
Henrietta had a note from Mr Kenyon to the effect that he was [‘]‘coming to see Ba” today if in any way he found it possible. Now he has not come—and the inference is that he will come tomorrow—in which case you will be convicted of not wishing to be with him perhaps– So .. would it not be advisable for you to call at his door for a moment—& before you come here? Think of it. You know it would not do to vex him—would it?
