Dear Sir,

I had the honour, some considerable since, of sending to you, for your kind acceptance, in the name of the author, a poem by my friend Mr Charles Mead.

From a gentlemen of your Distinguished Character, and well known cultivated taste, I know it would be gratifying to Mr Mead to receive an opinion of this little production, which I hope it will not be very inconvenient to you to give.—

With every assurance of respect & consideration I am D Sir. Your obed Sr
