[Hampstead] Thursday 10. Oct. 1816.
My dear Sir,
I have been greatly distressed by hearing that you have been at the office in anxiety about the enclosed, & that the bill was presented yesterday. I had no idea that the bill would come though I knew I had the remainder of the money to pay; & the enclosed would have come yesterday, only it happened to be sent to me late, & consisted, as you see, of an order instead of notes. I have waited to day a long time for the boy from the office: but as he has come rather late, I think I had better send you the order itself without delaying to get it changed, as you can do that perhaps with some official facility that I am unacquainted with, & I shall not have the pain of keeping you waiting any longer. In great haste, but with equally great regard & gratitude, which is ever most sincerely your's
Leigh Hunt. [Continued at to of the page]
P.S. If there is any explanation to make that I can personally make, so as to do away any thing unpleasant, I shall be most happy to write, or come forward, or do any thing.
