Dato: 19. september 1847
Fra: Catherine Crowe   Til: H.C. Andersen
Sprog: engelsk.

Dear Mr. Andersen,

I asked you to send me a vol. of yr. little stories in Danish - but I find it is useless, for - there are no Hamiltonian Books in that language - so I shall never be able to leam it I fear - for the old method of Grammar and Dictionary is too tedious. The Hamiltonian system is by literal translation.

I have seen Rachel now and heard Jenny Lind - Jenny is enchanting - I cannot conceive any human voice surpassing hers - but Rachel is a Daughter of the Gods - La fille de Minos et de Pasiphae - la fille du soleil! She has possessed my soul, and absorbed me as nothing before ever did.

I hope you are well and flourishing and Iremain, very truly yours

Catherine Crowe.

2 Dannaway Street, Edinborough,

Sept. 19, 1847.
