King’s: Sunday.

My dear old Friend,—Is it impossible for you to come here before the term ends? We could then pass our last days at King’s together, and shed a tear on Haslingfield’s green baulks, if baulks be there still green? Think of this, Master Brooks. I have a letter from Merivale this morning, canvassing for a history of John Sobieski, and accusing me of excessive ‘melancholy, gravity, and refinement!’ I was greatly amused with the charges, having just cut myself shaving from a sudden laugh when the letter came. Lonsdale was with me yesterday and amused me very much by his account of ‘the springs rising’ when you were fishing at Walkerne. Adieu.

Ever yours,
F. H.
