‘Sunday Evening [16th June, 1850].

‘My dear Friend,—I am truly delighted to see your handwriting and hear of your welfare. But I do most positively interdict all exertion of writing, as I have to Lyndhurst even before his operation. It was performed by Dalrymple, which we thought right, rather than John Russell, not because he was more skilful, but as having attended him.

‘I will give you a letter every two days to keep you up to what is going on during your confinement. I have a very bad account of poor Luttrell.

‘Yours ever affectionately,
H. Brougham.

‘Our ladies desire their kind regards, and yesterday Lady Jersey nearly bit off my nose because I could not answer her so satisfactorily as I shall this evening.’
