3 pp, 12mo. 41 lines. Text clear and complete. Fair, on lightly-aged paper with a couple of closed tears. He is sending 'the trans. of the Baghobahan together with the Original', and trusts that Robinson will keep his promise 'and not detain it long'. Considers it fair that Robinson's friend 'should pay the carriage thereof from & to London'. 'The younger Stewart is to send me up a book of mine in about a week - the best way will be to send the Bagh along with it as it will be the same expence'. Suggest sending another book with 'the Bagh to Haileybury', rather than to Portman Square. 'I hope you have all got down safe - and that Abercrombie has not been beat again - I guess you have not yet seen Anderson at College - I saw Roberts yesterday afternoon who told me he had just been seeing Anderson at his lodgings where he left him comfortably in bed as usual | Of course the man is mad [.] I believe he is quite well in body - tis the immortal part of him that needeth the physician'.
