09Jun1864, My Pretty New Name

CHISWICK, Thursday, June 9th, 1864.
—I have received my first letters with my pretty new name, from Atie. P., M., Agnes, and At. C. We have begun "Westward Ho !" and Carlyle's "Fr. Revolution" ; also I spouted to Fred the "Allegro" and the "Penseroso," and other bits of poetry ; and I don't find him entirely un¬worthy.
