What means this deep & long silence? Why have I not received your paper?
Tho' with nice hand the balance you sustain
Of Covent-Garden & of Drury Lane,
& grand purveyor to the eyes & ears
Cull for the taste dramatic smiles & tears,
May not a friend from such a /---/ critic steal
An hour, yet not defraud the public weal?
If I did not enclose a direction, which I rather think I did, /---/ direct to me (under cover) to George Henry Rose Esqr. M.P.Christ-Church Hants. I shall expect to hear from you by return of post.
