[130r] Dear Mr de Morgan

I have for the last
fortnight ['been' inserted] daily intending to
write to you on mathematical
matters; & now I do not
think it worth while because
I have an idea of being in
Town on Tuesdy next for a
day or two.  And if  could
see you on Weddy, either by
your kindly coming to me
[130v] at 12 o'clock that day, or by
my going to spend Weddy 
Evin Gower St, it
would answer the purpose much
better.  Besides having a
list of ['particular,' inserted] little things to ask
you about; I am now anxious
to consult you again as to
my general progress & way of
going on.  I have one or
two little difficulties just now.

I believe we shall
remain on here for some
weeks longer.  My intended
journey to Town is only on
particular business.  And by the
bye it is not to be known
that I am going.  My mother
[131r] even has no idea of it; & I
do not wish that she should.
So I will thank you & Mr 
De Morgan to mention nothing
about it to any one.
How is she?  And when to
be confined?

 Yours most truly

 A. A. Lovelace
