My Dear Talfourd
I write in great haste to say that I have only just now got your letter, and that I am in a state of the utmost vexation at not being able to come  today.  I feel that we ought to dine somewhere together, afterwards; and I am engaged (for my sins) to go with Mary Barton to the German opera, and to dine with her, first.
But do let us make a day, for one of our old-time walks.  Can you give me any notion of what days there are in perspective, when you can be idle?  I will compare them with mine, then, and we can fix one with which nothing foreseen, shall interfere.
Ever affectionately
