April 20th 1832
I am very sorry that I did not know you would be in the Country, at this Time, otherwise, I should have begged you to meet the Mundys <1> here. They came Wednesday evening: and stay a week. Would you now join us tomorrow and pass a few days with us; and we would then engage to pay a visit to Lacock on Monday under your personal guidance.
Mrs Mundy will not write to you, as she hopes you will accede to this Proposal.
It was very stupid in me not to have thought of it before.
I am always
