[119] gratitude for all that you have done for me. You gave me the jewel I have; for I never should have learned Italian without you. I think that my highest, maddest ambition—without the expectation of ever gratifying that minimum—was to read the ‘Inferno’ of Dante! I wish I were in Rome now, to talk with Mrs. Greene in her own sweet tongue. Do not fail to write me at Vienna immediately,—care of Arnstein & Eskeles.

As ever, yours affectionately,

P. S. What a parcel of letters I shall find in Vienna,—the accumulation of two months and a half! I shall then hear from the letters about Crawford. How good it would be, if the ‘Franklin’ and ‘Orpheus’ were both ordered!

Take Preston to Thorwaldsen's studio and the Vatican. What a delicious thing the ‘Pastor Fido’ is!
