A folded sheet of stationary written on three sides. A letter from Alfred Lord Tennyson to Ludovic Colquhoun. Tennyson regrets that he can not visit Edinburgh as promised. Also Tennyson is sending a copy of In Memoriam. "Tent Lodge Coriston Wahr Ambelside 6 Sept 1850 My dear Colquohoun- I am sorry that after my promise I shall be obliged to give up my visit to Edinburgh this year. Many circumstances here occurred to prevent me. More than can be explained sastifactorily in a short notes. However, we shall meet, I doubt not, sooner or later. Since I wrote In Memoriam has nearly run through another editor. There were no copies on hand when you asked for one. I have written to Mr. Morgan to send you one. I ought to have written before but I out it off according to my unpraiseworthy custom. now as I am not at hand to inscribe it as a gift to you I send a little slip for you to put to in it. God help you my dear Colphonon and with many thanks for your last kind and friendly note. Believe me am yours A.Tennyson My wife hopes to have the pleasure of meeting your acquaintance some day, and meantime sent you her kind regards."
