Monday morning [July 19, 1847].
My dear Mr. Andersen,
your letter is just come, and by the next post I send you your Dull-Weather in an English dress. The other poem I think still more beautiful than when you read it, it requires much more time and shall have it as soon as possible.
We hope you will soon be quite well. The weather is now cool and dull. It will give us very great pleasure, as you know, to have you here. Let the time be made convenient to yourself - only let it not be between tomorrow and Friday, as we are going from home. After Friday will suit us, and for as many days as you will give us. Do not forget in your many engagements that you are engaged to us for the 31st inst.
I am, dear Mr. Andersen, with the kindest remembrance of all the family, Yours very sincerely,
We see already good notices of your autobiography.
