I did not receive your favor dated Monday the 10th:6 till this day at Noon, consequently it was then too late to do myself the honour of waiting on you according to your Appointment. I therefore take the liberty of inclosing Mr Bridgen’s letter, and entreat the favor of your Answer as soon as possible.
I am, with great Respect, Sir, Your most Obedient Servant
