You will think my correspondence everlasting – but we are anxious to know without unnecessary delay, whether Ms Talbot <1> and yourself will dine with us on Friday neat (the 23d) at six o’clock. There are beds, if you will sleep here.
Yours very truly
G. Poulett Scrope
H. F. Talbot Esqre.
1. Constance Talbot, née Mundy (1811–1880), WHFT’s wife.
