4pp., 4to. Bifolium, with the last page of text cross-written over the first, and the valediction and signature cross-written over the second. In fair condition, on aged paper, with short closed tears along crease lines of the second page. Addressed on reverse of second leaf, with red wax seal and postmarks, to 'John Inglis Esq | Balliol College | Oxford', and redirected to 'Loganbank'. Neatly and closely written in a somewhat difficult hand (made worse by the cross-writing), the letter begins: 'Having never heard a word about you my dearest Johnny, since the morning you left this in J Lindsays Gig, I began to feel a kind of ignorant impertinence to know something of your movements at Oxford if you are in the way of getting a prize this year'. The rest of the letter is filled with family news, of which the following is a sample: 'Mary has been inviting Meg to pay her a visit in Maitland St but her going depends entirely on Papa continuing to improve, in the first place she goes to St Andrews with John, to visit the Cooks, and will probably proceed from thence to Edinh. if all things go smoothly. I trust Papa will not prevent her, as a change to a town is certainly agreeable in Winter.' The ODNB sketches out Inglis's education: 'He went to Edinburgh high school and then to the University of Glasgow. From there he proceeded in November 1828 to Balliol College, Oxford, as a Snell exhibitioner. He graduated BA in 1833 and MA in 1837, and was admitted a member of the Faculty of Advocates in July 1835.'. N° de ref. de la librería 14053
