The family leave here for Dublin the first of May and will have everything ready for me by the 4th or 5th of May, no doubt. I thank you ever so much for your exceedingly kind invitation and I gladly accept it. I will keep bachelor's hall at the Touraine three days, & remove to your house on the day appointed for me in your letter - May first. I am a desperately tired man & I have engagements in front of me which will find me much more tireder by the time I reach Boston. I shall be wholily (sic) glad to slump down three & have a rest. With many thanks and with love to you all and to Margaret. Sincerely yours, S.L. Clemens
