My Dear Maclise
I am dead (in spirit) with yesterday’s work. I’ll call on you – alone in the carriage – at 2. For Heaven’s sake let us range the fields and get some freshness if its only fresh rain. I want to read to you what I did yesterday, as it shadows out one or two ideas which, if you exert your pencil in my behalf at all, perhaps would suit you as well as any other. For this purpose I have kept back the MS from the Printer, and will come with it in my pocket.
Faithfully Yours Ever
