Letter 6: Tafani to Wilde, 29 April 1877

29th April, 1877

Jesus College, Oxford

I write, despite the risk that this may not reach you for some time, in case you may feel encouraged to delay your return as your punishment has already been meted out.

It may not be that Allen will take the matter quite so philosophically as you yourself do. {Quite!} The work that he may dictate for you to complete by the October Term will, I have no doubt, be substantial, and this novelistic mania may prove a distraction.

Do write to me if you receive this before we meet again in halls.

Yours lovingly,
