London Feb. 28. 1788.
My Dear Friend,—
The Letter that accompanies this, is from a Character so respectable, that I beg leave to recommend it to your particular attention.
The Correspondent will be found worthy of you. I have taken Leave, and shall embark, as soon as the Equinoxial and its roughest Blusters are past.
The Emperors Declaration of War announces louder storms in Europe: but I hope to escape them all in a peaceful Harbour at Braintree.
