531.  William Charles Macready to RB

As published in The Brownings’ Correspondence, 3, 183.


July 21st 1836.

My dear Browning

Of the very short vacation with which I am indulged this summer, very little remains to me, and that little is fleeting as fast as time, that we most anxiously desire to move slowly, usually does.

Will you consent to quicken its pace for us by adding to its pleasures, and making us regret still more our inability to retard it?—— If you can spare Saturday and Sunday 30th & 31st inst to bestow on us, with as many days as you can add to them, we shall be indeed very happy in expecting you and more so in seeing you.

Mrs Macready and my Sister[1] unite in kindest regards with, dear Browning,

Yours always and sincerely

W. C. Macready.
