Dear Sir,—£150 will be placed payable to your draft at Messrs. Coutts & Co. to-morrow.

“The Duke of Devonshire and Lord Cowper, the only persons to whom I mentioned the subject, having immediately advanced me £50 each, I thought it might be convenient to you to have the £150 without loss of time; and when the time of the pending elections is over, and my friends returned to town, I have no doubt of being able to send you the other moiety of the loan, or at any rate you shall receive in a few days ample legal security for such a sum.

“I have been studying Mr Baldwin’s books, and think them very good indeed.—Yours ever,
