2007-04 Dr Sir Upon my word and Honour I knew nothing
of the Letter you left for me on your leaving
London, till told by Mr Jones, some days after his
arrival here, that you had complaind of my
taking no notice of it. I immediately made the
strictest inquiry, & to my great surprize found it
in the cover which enclosLd the part of the
Bastard. -You may remember it was left
at the time I was at Tunbridge.
I am heartily glad to hear of your success. I give you joy of the Managers Friendship &warmly wish it may continue.
