Descripción

2pp., 4to. On both sides of the first leaf of a bifolium, with the reverse of the second leaf cut down by a third, and carrying a red wax seal and three postmarks, with the address by Gurney to Waddington in Rouen. After explaining that he has been away in Yorkshire, he expresses regret that 'our efforts respecting Edwd Cherry have so terminated - it is however clear that the maintenance of fhis wife and family is an overwhelming duty to him'. He has himself made payments in London, and understood that 'our Friends in Rouen were to pay for the room &c'. Nevertheless he is sending a draft on his bankers for 'the sum specified less the £9 thou hast not advanced Edwd Cherry. - I feel for him and should £10 be required to help him to move to the country I shall be willing to give it to him'. He concludes regarding the filling of Cherry's place, and 'the maintenance of the school and library'. N° de ref. de la librería 13563
