My Dear Talfourd.
I CAN’T.2 I have refused two invitations, without counting yours. hat would have been nothing however, for I would ave gladly come to you when I would go nowhere else. But I am engaged at home, and have been for a fortnight and it is out of my power to make any new arrangements now.

Always faithfully Yours
