From Thomas Russell-Greaves
Nîmes, 4 Jan. 1789. Has changed his intention of going to the North of France. “The severity of the winter here … induces me to search in the milder atmosphere of Italy … the reestablishment of my health; an happiness denied me in this Country.” Will leave in a few days for Marseilles; requests letters of introduction for Rome or Naples.
