I find from Sir Alexander Johnston that we are to relinquish all hope of hearing you for this year. I do so with great regret; for few people know so well as I do what we lose.
Sir A. J. tells me you go this week. In that case I am sure you must have something else to do than  to travel that far North. If, as I fear, I can scarcely hope to see you here I think I must shock the people at your hotel once more & say adieu to you there.
I have an invitation & a very pressing one to deliver to you from my friend Ms Buller – that you would pay her a visit at her lovely place in  Cornwall.
She begs me to undertake to pilot you down – an office I am ready enough for –
Polvellan as an object & Monsieur de Schlegel as compagnon de voyage are however too good for this miserable reforming world.
I am Dear Sir
most respectfully yourʼs
Sarah Austin –
If you have any intention xxxxxxxxxx of coming (which I cannot at all expect) pray give me notice that I may on no account be out –
