Descripción

12mo, 4 pp, in a bifolium, with postscript on reverse of a Commercial Bank of Scotland 'Paid-in Slip'. Text clear and complete on aged and worn paper. Difficult hand. A fluent and energetic letter. Regarding the queries concerning 'Strasburg, and other words', 'the German Authorities which I fancy you consulted [.] are in my Edinburgh house'. He suggests writing to the London booksellers Williams & Norgate. He is glad to learn that 'Lockhart is turned a golfer. With regard to Sunday & other mattters you are too severe: a poor boy locked up from day to day and from week to week in a dull country house ought not to be grudged a little fresh air, and open door recreation, when it comes in his way. True religion is no enemy to natural earthly enjoyment.' Postscript, initialled 'J S B', reads 'What is Money? - the most tyrannical of all masters and the most useful of all servants.'.
