Winterbourne, Sunday Night
                 Twenty Seventh September 1849.
My Dear Mrs. Leech.
I cannot help thinking that it would be better--and that it would be more comfortable for you--if Beard and I came and sat upon the little sofa in the sitting room until Morning.  I wish you would think with me, and say YES.  The probability is that Leech will fall into a sleep, and get infinitely better, but I don't like to think of you alone there,--and it would be an immense relief to me to be your friend at hand, as I ever am at heart.  Let me beg you to think of this again--not for any need's sake (thank God) but for your own greater ease, and ours.
                                                                                                       Ever Affectionately Yours
John waits for a word.                                                                                                      CD.
