Thomas Gray to Norton Nicholls, [29 May 1768]
South:n Row. 29 May. Sunday.
Addio! You will have the satisfaction of going to Fischer's concert, and hearing Pugnani without me, on Thursday; I don't believe there will be any body one knows there. My respects to Mrs Nicholls, and my cousin, Miss Floyer, not forgetting the red nightingale. I am gone tomorrow.
Here are a pair of your stray shoes, dancing attendance, till you send for them.
