To Fanny Brawne (29 (?) February, 1820)
29 (?) February, 1820
My dear Fanny,
I think you had better not make any long stay with me when Mr Brown is at home. Wh[en]ever he goes out you may bring your work. You will have a pleasant walk to day. I shall see you pass. I shall follow you with my eyes over the Heath. Will you come towards evening instead of before dinner – when you are gone, ‘t is past – if you do not come till the evening I have something to look forward to all day. Come round to my window for a moment when you have read this. Thank your Mother, for the preserves, for me. The raspberry will be too sweet not having any acid; therefore as you are so good a girl I shall make you a present of it. Good bye
My sweet Love!
