My dear Madam,
Excuse very great and indeed headlong haste. I shall be very glad to see the papers you speak of, but dare not promise to use them very "soon," because I dare not <long> look for proceeds sufficient to warrant their use; and however they might please me, I could not think of hindering the chance of turning them to right account. Therefore pray act accordingly, & construe me at all events in the kind spirit, which I hear (as well as see) is customary with you, & which must naturally make every body desirous of seeing you pleased. When I can muster up courage enough, or cause enough, to think that I can give you any reason to be so, I will venture to shew you the face of
Yours with great truth,
Leigh Hunt. [Continued at top of page]
P.S. I beg your acceptance of a copy of the only Repository I have had any thing to do with, & the only one indeed (of the whole series) that I possess; but this will be sufficient for your purposes.
