Folios 138-139: AAL to ADM

 Dear Mr De Morgan.  What
will you say when I write
word that my intended
journey is again delayed? &
cannot now take place before
Sunday or Monday week.  I
fear you will never trust me
again; but I must beg to
assure you that this uncertainty
has been quite unavoidable.

Everything was arranged
last night for our setting out
at six this morning; when
[138v] unexpected circumstances obliged
us to delay once more ['fulfilling' inserted] our
intentions.  I shall really feel
quite ashamed next time, to
write to you on a similar
appointment; altho' I do not
think it is possible that
another put-off should occur.

May I hope meanwhile
to receive a reply to my last
letter of Monday.
I am going on very well
indeed I believe now, with
my studies; next week I
expect a few interruptions
however from some engagements
I have made.
With many apologies, pray
[139r] believe me

 Yours most truly

 A. A. Lovelace
