Scope and content

18 Buccleuch Place, Edinburgh. At the Sign of the Edinburgh Review. - Clara Wallace has agreed to marry him: 'there will be a great renascence of old connexions, and no more breaks'. Has received Bessie's letter, and is indeed 'writing to Gaudeamus - so there!'. Asks if Bob has 'become a fruity & porty Tory since the Dear Old Spectator went into raptures over "Thamyris [or : Is There a Future for Poetry?"'], or if he will be shocked that Tovey agrees with it.
