Hop forbi menu og nyheder

Dato: 26. august 1847
Fra: H.C. Andersen   Til: Richard Bentley
Sprog: dansk.

Sabloniere Hotel. Saturday - the 26 Augst 1847.

Dear Sir and friend!

I felt so unwell the last few days in Scotland as to be obliged to give up the idea of visiting Loch Laggan and Abbotsford. I arrived in London towards evening and now after having rested 2 days think of returning to Germany.

I am only anxious for quiet, but I must see you and your family first!

I leave London on Sunday - that is to-morrow - by the train starting at 9½ o'clock for Tunbridge, where I hope, according to your kind promise to find your carriage, will you then kindly keep me till the next morning and return me to the place whence you fetched me?

I have taken my portrait to your residence in Burlington Street and you shall shortly have my Bust.

Mr Hambro will speak to you respecting my new romance on your return to London. I can only say that I place a friends whole confidence in you; you will guard my Interest as your own!

In the Spring you shall receive the English manuscript of the romance. - It will be as large as the Improvisator.

A Thousand compliments to all in your family circle.

Yours sincerely devoted,

H. C. Andersen.
