Je ne puis d'avantage écouter en silence. Il faut que je vous parle, avec les moyens dont je dispose. Vous transpercez mon âme. Je suis partagé entre l'angoisse et l'espoir. Non, ne me dites pas qu'il est trop tard, que ces précieux sentiments ont disparu à jamais. Je vous offre de nouveau un cœur qui vous appartient encore plus totalement que lorsque vous l'avez brisé, il y a huit ans et demi. Ne prétendez pas que l'homme oublie plus vite que la femme, que son amour meurt plus tôt. Je n'ai jamais aimé que vous. Injuste, j'ai pu l'être, faible et rancunier, je l'ai été… mais inconstant, jamais. C'est vous seule qui m'avez fait venir à Bath. C'est pour vous seule que je pense, que je fais des projets… Ne l'avez-vous pas senti ? N'avez-vous pas compris mes souhaits ?… Je n'aurais même pas attendu dix jours si j'avais pu lire vos sentiments comme je pense que vous avez dû pénétrer les miens. J'arrive à peine à vous écrire. J'entends à tout moment quelque chose qui me bouleverse. Vous baissez là voix, mais je puis distinguer les inflexions de cette voix, quand elles échapperaient à d'autres… Ô parfaite, excellente créature ! Vous nous rendez bien justice. Vous êtes sûre que l'attachement et la constance véritable existent parmi les hommes. Soyez assurée de les trouver infiniment fervents, infiniment fidèles chez F. W. Il faut que je parte, incertain de mon sort ; mais je reviendrai ici ou bien je rejoindrai votre groupe dès qu'il me sera possible. Un mot, un regard suffiront à décider si j'entrerai chez votre père ce soir, ou jamais.
