My dear Mrs. Macready
I regret to say that Mrs. Stanfield has been confined to her room for nearly a fortnight and is now ill in bed. Should she so far recover as to enable her to come out she de-sires me to say it will give her infinite pleasure to meet you on the Ninth.
May I beg your acceptance of the accompanying Portfolios of Imitations of my last years Sketches. They have been packed for you this week past, and I had intended calling on you with them, but have been prevented.
I rejoice most sincerely at the success of Coriolanus Everybody
