My dear Mrs. Bushby.

First of all my most heartfelt thanks for the pleasant hours spent in your house on Friday last; unfortunately I was not at all well, the air in this city does not suit me very well. In half an hour's time I shall go away to Gadshill again together with the Dickens' family and I shall be back here tomorrow, but not unitl later in hte day, so that I cannot have the honour and pleasure of seeing tomorrow morning Mr. Lloyd. But if you, my dear Mrs Bushby, will furnish me with his address I will take the liberty of calling on him sometime this week.

Yours most cordially and affectionately,

Hans Christian Andersen.
