|Dear Sir||Grosvenor Square Westminster Sept. 25 1785|
I received in due season, your kind congratulations on my arrival in this country and should have answered them sooner, if your Design of a Journey, which you mentioned to me had not made it uncertain, at what Place I might address you.
Enclosed is a Letter from your Friend Mr. Smith. Our Friends in Boston are racking their Inventions to encourage Manufacturers among themselves, and to explore new Channels of Commerce, because Britain will not take in payment for theirs such Remittances as our country produces. In other Respects they are well and happy.
My Family joins me in wishing you Health and Happiness.
With much respect I have the Honour / to be, Sir, your most obedient / Servant
