My Dear Sir
It seems to be my luck to send you notes about nothing, but as Wednesday is a day on which you have often honoured me with a call, I thought it right to let you know that Mr. Bedford will be here on business at four o’clock. I shall however be at home the whole of the day, if you should chance to have a spare half hour either earlier, or in the Evening. Pray am to condole with or congratulate you on the snow? & the prospect of your having soon to exhibit with my Niece in Hyde Park? – in haste
Yours affectionately
E A Porden
