Folios 40-41: ADM to AALAL

[40r] My dear Lady Lovelace

There is a misprint
in page 83, I find, line 6 from
the bottom.  For \(x+w\) read
\( x+1\) .  Your result is correct
for an in crement [sic] [something crossed out] \(w\) .

My last letter was 
all ready when yours arrived
and I had no time to make
any addition.  My wife
begs me to give her kind
regards and to say that she
knows her mother will
wish her to be with her
[40v] on Sunday Evening (the day 
after Mr. Frend's funeral) so
that she will be glad if you
can come any other evening
in the week

With kind remembrances
to Lord Lovelace

 I remain
       Yours very truly

 69 Gower St.

[42v] [Small note --- either where letter was addressed after folding or simply a librarian's label]
