TC TO DELIA BACON
5 GT. CHEYNE ROW, CHELSEA, 8 June, 1853.
MY DEAR MADAM,—Will you kindly dispense with the ceremony of being called on (by sickly people, in this hot weather), and come to us on Friday evening to tea at 7. I will try to secure Mr. Spedding at the same time;1 and we will deliberate what is to be done in your Shakspere affair. A river steamer will bring you within a gunshot of us. You pronounce “Chainie” Row; and get out at Cadogan Pier, which is your first landing place in Chelsea.——Except Mrs. C. and the chance of Spedding, there will be nobody here.2
Yours very sincerely,
