.. han har gennem Mrs. Busbhy hrt, at A. vilde aflgge ham et besg samme dag kl. 12.30. Da Mr. lloyd ikke kunde vre hjemme for at tage imod A. bad han denne opgive besget:

Mr. Lloyd ventures to hope that on some future visit of Mr. Andersen to England he may have the gratification and parivelege of becoming personally acquainted with one from whose writings in their EEnglish dress he has derived more pleasure than he could express without incurring the suspicion of flattery. Sincerely hoping that Mr. Andersen may long be spard to the world of which he is so distingushed an ornament, Mr. lloyd bids him farewell with very sincere thanks for his kind cmpliance with Mrs. Bushby's request.
