Abbotsford, April 26, 1816.

. . .” The place from which I now date is the residence of the author of ‘The Lady of the Lake,’ etc. Constable and another friend brought me hither yesterday. We arrived to a six o’clock dinner, and all slept here. In the morning, Constable and his friend set off on their return for Edinburgh, and Mr Scott and myself for the ruins of Melrose Abbey, which makes so distinguished a figure in the Lay of the Last Minstrel, and from which we are this moment returned. After dinner I shall proceed to Selkirk, and in the evening take the mail for Carlisle.”
