[161r] Dear Mr De Morgan

Yes tomorrow
morning between \(\frac{1}{2}\) past
twelve & one o'clock
will do.  (Remember I
write Tuesday Night).

I am much provoked
at my stupid servants'
stupid blunder, but I
[161v] believe the poor man
meant to be highly
discerning & well-judging.
I was at the moment
treating for an Opera
Box for ['the night of' inserted] Rachel's Benefit,
which I conclude the
footman thought a
much more important
matter than any
spectacles in the world
could [something crossed out] betoken.  He is
a new man, & does not
know my people yet.
[162r] In haste

Yours most truly obliged

A. Ada Lovelace
