To Mrs. Kean, encouraging her and "Miss Kean" to visit, and writing: "I have meant to call and pay my respects to you in town . . . but my visits to London are very few and far between, and at the end of a painful day's shopping or other business a dis=hevelled soul from the wandering troubles to present herself in civilised regions. . . . I heard lately from Miss Blanchard from Edinburgh and I think she begins already to fear[?] the east winds of spring in that most beautiful but busyiest [sic] of towns. . . ." Remains of prior mounting on verso; else very good. (Item ID: 19000)
