Title: ALs to William Harrison Ainsworth
Fifth February 1841.
My Dear Ainsworth.
Will you tell me where that Punch is to be brought, what one is to ask for, and what the cost is. It has made me very uneasy in my mind.
Mind--I deny the beer. It is very excellent; but that it surpasses that meeker, and gentler, and brighter ale of mine (oh how bright it is!) I never will admit.
My gauntlet lies upon the cask. Yours in defiance.
