Kiøbenhavn. Thursday, 21st May 1874.
Høistærede, meget kjære Ven!
Only this moment (8.30 a.m.) your most kind letter comes into my hands. Early yesterday morning I went over to Skåne to pay a visit to Professor Ljunggren in Lund, slept at Malmö last night, and only returned this morning. If it be not too late, I will call and try to see you, according to your kind permission at 3 p.m. today.
Yours very sincerely,
Edmund W. Gosse
