Cambridge, 4th Oct. 1820
Having observed that you condescend to take an interest in various literary objects, and particularly such as are intended to promote the improvement of the rising generation, I take the liberty to forward to you a small Geography and Atlas, and to beg your acceptance of them as a token [of] my high respect. Though they are little worthy [of] your notice, you may perhaps deign to cast your eye over them, and then hand them to a grandchild, or some other young person, to whom they may not be useless.
With great respect and consideration / I am, Sir, / your most obedient and / humble servant
J. E. Worcester
