JWC TO W. H. BROOKFIELD

13? October 1853]

[In refusing an invitation to dinner on 15 Oct., JWC wrote: “It cannot be, dear Mr. Brookfield, Mr. C. is still ailing from his dinner at Darwin's, and will make no new engagement. For me, I am not in spirit fit for company, having just lost a dear uncle.”]
