    Dear Sir

    I am much obliged to you for the letter with which you favoured me by Dr. Franklin. It would have given me much pleasure to have met you at the London Coffee-House last night. I am to be at Lord Shelburne’s in Berkeley Square next monday morning; and, if convenient to you, I shall be very glad you would call upon me there any time between half an hour after ten and eleven o clock, that I may have the pleasure of introducing you to his Lordship. I am very glad you can give my friend Mr. Hollis the pleasure of your company to dine with him on tuesday. He goes to dinner at about half an hour after three, and lives in great Ormond Street, Bloomsbury. With the best wishes and much regard, I am, Sir, your very obedient and Humble Servant
