Hampstead— Dec. 18, 1815.
Messrs. Gale & Fenner,
My brother communicated to me on Saturday morning your note respecting the immediate settlement of this /--/ matter; & I should have answered it sooner, but for a press of business at the time, which prevented my doing so /on that
day/ before the post went out-— The day of rest I earn
honourably, & therefore chuse to spend /pleasurably/
happily.—In answer to the peremptory call implied in that
note for the instant return of the money advanced to me, I
can only say at present that I am now negotiating for the
purchase of /the poem/ the Story of Rimini, which can alone
enable me to effect it; & that I shall most certainly lose as
little farther time as possible in putting an end to this
