Mr. Boner, my favourite friend, and Andersen's best translator, has been in England and much here. He sent me the other day for dear Patty Lovejoy's album (she is a sweet little girl of eleven years old) and autograph of Spohr's, and one of Andersen's, and the latter is so pretty .. He (Andersen) is the lion of London this year, dukes, princes, and ministers are all disputing for an hour of his company; and Mr. Boner says that he is perfectly unspoilt, as simple as a child, and with as much poetry in his every-day doings as in his prose.
