CHELSEA, March 21, 1843

MY DEAR MR. STRACHEY, —I have received your beautiful little book, and am far indeed from “thinking less of you” for writing it.1 The little book is the product of a generous, pure, loving heart, and will speak good only, and not evil, into other hearts. Thanks to you for writing it; thanks to you for sending me a copy of it.

I have been exceedingly busy with printers, with copyists, and other confused persons and things ever since I saw you, or I should have been in Mount Street again. In a week or so I hope to be freer, and then—

With many thanks, with constant good wishes,

Yours most sincerely, /
