 Saturday morning

Best of dears! Will you forgive me for daring to name Sunday as my day for coming to see you. forgetting at the moment that I had an engagement for that day at Kingston. I hope I have not led you into any loss of pleasure elsewhere. May I come to you for a little while on Monday at 4. oclock [sic] - or half past 4. just to look at you & let me know when I shall come again.
[233 reverse] ah you make me such a +++! How happy I was with you on Thursday. Did you get the cold I did - for I was so delayed with wretched +++ that I did not reach my door until past 10 o'clock so cold & shivering! I hope you escaped. It was very dear walking with you. & dearer. listening to you If I come in an open carriage will you drive with us on Monday afternoon? That will be nicest for
 all will it not? send me one word to reach me on Monday morning at 9. Cunningham Place — St Johns Wood (where I shall rest my bones for the next three weeks) to say 'Yes'.
God love you dear. & make you always care for
Mrs Dilberoghue is very bad with her foot.
Miss Stebbins goes there tomorrow -
