Thomas Gray to Horace Walpole, 10 July 1764
To The Honble Horace Walpole in Arlington Street London M:P:
SAFFRON WALDEN IY
I send you the list you desired, wch now perhaps signifies little, but I could not procure it sooner. Harding is N: Harding's Son: his Uncle Pratt has taken him away, & written a proper letter to Dr Smith on the occasion.
Has Ld Herbert drown'd himself in his own purling stream, or has he only wetted his ruff, & discomposed his mustachoes? & what has the Man-mountain been doing at Court?
