Cheyne Row [19 December 1853]

I cannot write till tomorrow but just a line that you may not be fancying horrors about me— I did get home—and did do what was to be done—but now I must go to bed— It is nothing whatever but a nervous headach which was sure to have come after so many nights without sleep and perhaps it was as easy to transact it on the railway as in a bed in a strange house

I shall be better tomorow and will then tell you about the business proceeds

Greetings to Lady A1

Yours affly2 /
