"Thank you very much for asking me: may I leave it uncertain if I come, as I am going to be much away painting for some time. I hardly know when I shall be in town and when not. I was rushed down here for the bluebells, which I hope I shall find today to be just in perfection. With my thanks, sincerely yours, Helen Allingham."
