JBW TO THOMAS CARLYLE

[30 April 1823]

My dear Friend

I am sorry you made so sure of us on Saturday— We do not always ride when we put on our spurs. We only got here last night— Come tomorrow in the early part of the day or after tea— we might miss you in the forenoon, be very reasonable for a little while— when my Mother goes to D[umfries]shire I will see you as often as you please—

Yours affectionately /

Jane B Welsh
