I called at your lodgings in November last, but your servant told me you was not within, and that you intended to set out for Bath in a day or two ; on which, being exceedingly desirous of an interview with you, I sent you a letter requesting that favour; but going out of town myself a few days after, and having received no answer, I am at a loss what to conclude on, whether my letter might have failed, or that you do not incline to favour me with an interview ; and hence I am induced to trouble you with this, and to request that you will simply inform me by a line, if you received my letter of November, and if an interview will be agreeable or not. I wish to obviate and remove any late prejudices which you may have entertained against me, from the most gross misrepresentations of my conduct since my arrival in England ; and I submit to you the propriety of giving me an opportunity for doing this ; and am, with great respect, sir,
Your most obedient and very humble servant,
