I don't know till this very day whether I destroyed them, or only hid them ingeniously. … Our correspondence was of the most intimate nature, as you can surmise.

I only regret the expense you've incurred. May I offer to share half of it with you? I would have had to acquire the letters myself if the man had approached me directly.
