‘Walmer Castle: 20th Sept., 1851.

‘My dear Rogers,—I was obliged to come away between ten and eleven this morning, and prevented from sending to you as we had agreed. I told the great man of this Castle that you desired your kind remembrances and respects to him, and he said he was much gratified and asked me very kindly after you, being quite pleased with the good account I gave of you. When I told him I had seen you in the hands of the operator, and quoted the Sheridan anecdote1 as given me by you, he was much amused, but he did not admit his own repugnance to undergoing it, probably because he feels that he has been compelled to do so repeatedly.

‘There is no one here except Lady Charles, and I don’t think that in all the agreeable evenings I have passed with him I ever had one so pleasant and so interesting as this.

‘To-morrow, I hope to dine at Paris (D.V.), as the boat sails early.

‘I shall let you know from there if I hear anything interesting.

‘Believe me most truly yours,
H. Brougham.

‘Don’t omit to remember me to Luttrell, whom I was extremely vexed not to be able to see.’
