My dearest Lady Thompson,
I hear with great satisfaction, how kind you will be to Delara, to allow her to give a recital in your house. |2| But I am afraid, that in a fourtnight it will be too soon for her. Delara has worked hard, and, you know, she is not stroke. She must at least have a fourtnight to rest, than she must get accustomed to the Piano, which are very different to ours. I am afraid she will not be able to do her best, if [?] |3| this recital is arranged too much in a hurry! I cannot speak to Adelina about this, as she is must impatient to play in public, and would not listen to reason. I mean the best way is to say to her, that the recital must be delayed; you will easely find a pretext.
[?] Too much depends from her first appearance as you know very well. |4| You will find her greatly improved – she played several times quite beautifully.
With affectionate greetings, I am, dearest Lady Thompson
Clara Schumann.
In haste.
