My dear Nellie -
Don't for a moment suppose that Dr Taylor's letter could interfere with any thing you wish - and of course you shall have a proof of the lithograph when I come over - for I have none here - and meanwhile you can promise one -
I will get you others if you wish -
I send you Taylor's letter that you may see what I mean - but it is of no consequence whatever [p. 2] and you had better burn it immediately and forget all about it - Besides I believe with you that Mr Taylor "meant well" - and of course fell into a pit, after the manner of well meaning Britons -
This goes now -
