Dear Expert! -

I regret that you could not have been by when the inspired Counsel, on your own side read my letter to the N Y Herald in reply to the Eden

But you had all turned tail, and bolted the night before! - or the very same morning - for aught I know -
I shall always
be glad see you with the greatest delight - looking upon you as the original means of bringing about one of my most completely joyful moments!
With compliments to "Sir Eden", and my assurances that he is begin[n]ing to be appreciated in Paris as thoroughly as he is understood in
