2pp., 12mo. In a windowpane mount on a leaf removed from an album. The letter itself very good, on aged paper; the mount worn at extremities. He begins by informing the recipient that his 'last Letter has made ample atonement for the provocation of the preceding', and he has 'ever been the foremost, both in word & deed, to keep my wings in motion. I speak this seriously: my former note was only a temporary petulance'. The second paragraph begins: 'I must positively have another Paper for my Orators'. He has 'run to a fearful length, & yet have cramped myself all the way. Besides what I enclose, I shall have ready as much to forward, in the shape of reflexion, inferences &c, before I enclose with my legal oratory. And then I have the Political Oratory on my hands'. He continues: 'I engage to bring Demosthenes upon the stage in a new manner, & when I have him there, I should like to shew him to as much advantage as I can'. The letter continues in the same vein, with a postscript beginning: 'Let me hear as soon as you can, that my time of gestation is extended.'. N° de ref. de la librería 12476
