‘Dear Mackintosh,—Dr. Parr dines with me on Thursday, 3rd of August, and he wishes to meet some of his old friends under my roof, as it may be for the last time. He has named Whishaw, and Sharp, and Lord Holland, and he says,

‘“I want to shake hands with Mackintosh once before I die.”

‘May I ask you to be of the party? That you can forgive I know full well. That you will forgive in this instance, much as you have to forgive, I hope fervently. Some of the pleasantest moments of my life have been spent in the humble office I am now venturing to take upon myself, and I am sure you will not take it amiss if I wish on this occasion to add to the number.

‘Yours very truly,
‘S. R.’
