Wentworth Place, [December 27, 1818].
My dear Haydon — I had an engagement to-day — and it is so fine a morning that I cannot put it off — I will be with you to-morrow — when we will thank the Gods, though you have bad eyes and I am idle.
I regret more than anything the not being able to dine with you to-day. I have had several movements that way — but then I should disappoint one who has been my true friend. I will be with you to-morrow morning and stop all day — we will hate the profane vulgar and make us Wings.
God bless you.
