To The Honble Horace Walpole In Arlington Street London M:P:
ROYSTON 18 AV
I return you abundance of thanks for Ld Herbert & for the Pamphlet. the first is exceedingly defective in its Commas & Semicolons. the latter has a misfortune attends it (not at all in your power to remedy) that few or none had read the Address, wch occasion'd it. if they do now, it is your doing.
I shall probably be in Town in about a fortnight, where I hope to have the pleasure of seeing you.
