Monday Twenty Third October
My Dear Leech,
There is rather a good Britannia Saloon Bill, out, announcing a gentleman with a wooden leg to dance the Highland Fling. There is a portrait of him in the bill, with his wooden leg highly ornamented with rosettes.
It appears to me that this demands our attention. Egg says he would like to go with us, and that if you will send him round a note, proposing an evening and a time for calling on him, he will, with yearnings, respond. Therefore if you'll send me one line, mentioning what evening this week you'll both call here--say at 7--I will be (as you know I always am) to the fore at the appointed time.
