[p.m. (? January, Sunday) 1828.]

DEAR Moxon I have to thank you for despatching so much business for me. I am uneasy respecting the enclosed receipts which you sent me and are dated Jan. 1827. Pray get them chang’d by Mr. Henshall to 1825. I have been in a very nervous way since I saw you. Pray excuse me to the Hoods for not answering his very pleasant letter. I am very poorly. The “Keepsake” I hope is return’d. I sent it back by Mrs. Hazlitt on Thursday. ’Twas blotted outside when it came. The rest I think are mine. My heart bleeds about poor Hone, that such an agreeable
book, and a Book there seem’d no reason should not go on for ever, should be given up, and a thing substituted which in its Nature cannot last. Don’t send me any more “
Companions,” for it only vexes me about the Table Book. This is not weather to hope to see any body to day, but without any particular invitations, pray consider that we are at any time most glad to see you, You (with Hunt’sLord Byron” or Hazlitt’s “Napoleon “in your hand) or You simply with your switch &c. The night was damnable and the morning is not too bless-able. If you get my dates changed, I will not trouble you with business for some time. Best of all remembces to the Hoods, with a malicious congratulation on their friend Rice’s advancemt.

Yours truly

C. Lamb.
