799 | From Lord Barrington

    Beckett September the 7th: 1769.

    Dear Sir,

    I most sincerely congratulate you on your safe arrival in England, and think my self very unfortunate in being here, at a time when perhaps you may want me in London. I am obliged to stay here till Monday, having my house full of Company who continue with me till then: on tuesday1 before dinner I shall be in London, and hope to get to the War Office by two o’Clock, it being my Office day: I will endeavour to wait on you in Chidleigh Court as I go thither, and shall be able to fix a time when we may have a great deal of Conversation on many Subjects. I hope you left Lady Bernard & my Cousins in perfect health.2 I am with great truth & regard

    Dear Sir Your most Obedient humble Servant
