[ca. 15 May 1858]

Dear Mrs. Gilchrist: I would go in to speak, but that I should probably bring you away from something. So I write to ask can you conveniently come in and stand over me while I make the bread myself today?1 My cousins are not coming to-day and are coming to-morrow; so perhaps I had best avail myself of the present opportunity. If to-day; tell me what hour—and tell me where Emma2 gets the yeast. And when Charlotte shall come for the flour? A precious Bother I am to be sure to you! But if I can never reward you on earth you are pretty certain to have two little additional wings for it in heaven!

Yours most gratefully

Jane Carlyle.
