My Dear Mitton.
    I am not at all clear about that: being naturally averse to putting any one over Talfourd's head. If I retained Wilde (after consultation with Talfourd to prevent his being against us, if T thinks right, and without any kind of suggestion from me) I would retain the next best Queen's Counsel junior to Talfourd, also, and have three of them. The extra fee makes very little difference.
    Why can't it be in the Queen's Bench. Lord Denman really likes me, and has an interest in me. He is a man of the world, and would be better up to their "Literacy" witnesses than Tindal, I think.
    I wish to God you would come here, from Westmenster, and take what you can get, in the Study, for dinner. You and Kate must join hands when she is about again, and I see no reason why we should make any further difficulty of a bad business from beginning to end.
                                                                                                    Affecy. always
