Wondering why she has not answered a letter he wrote to her before leaving Venice; telling her not to worry about the post because "the World has it's [sic] own affairs without thinking of ours"; noting that his house in Venice is "within sight of the Rialto bridge"; writing that she "must always be to [him] the first consideration in the World"; asking if she and her family would like to come to Italy for her health, and offering to pay for them to do so; detailing his liaison with Teresa Guiccioli; reporting that he has his "saddle-horses here and there is good riding in the forest"; sending her a sonnet by Guiccioli; complaining that Guiccioli does not know how to guide her horse and giving a humorous description of going riding with her; mentioning that he is also "a little in love" with Guiccioli's intimate friend, "a certain Geltruda," but that Geltruda's husband is jealous.
