1. This brief message, written on a small sheet of stationery, was apparently an enclosure that became separated from one of EBB’s letters, which cannot be identified. Therefore, it is being treated as a separate letter. It most likely was prompted by RB’s projected visit to Greenwich with Mrs. Jameson, which he presumably discussed during his visit to Wimpole Street on 15 June, and it seems probable that it was sent with one of the three letters EBB wrote on 16 June. It did not appear in the 1899 edition of the love letters.
