Saturday. [Postmark: 4 July 1846]

Dearest Ba,

I am at Mrs Jameson’s .. to hear you cannot come,—most properly .. She wants me to go and see an Exhibition, and I cannot refuse .. so this is my poor long letter (with kisses in the words,) that was to have been! But on Monday, dearest, dearest, I shall see you? All thanks for your letter .. I dare write no more, as there must be some difference in my way of writing to you from other ways.

Bless you, ever as I am ever yours–
