Friday 10th. February 1809.
My dear, dear girl,
I send you the Statesman of this evening, and one of Wednesday last all but a small piece of it which my brother cut out for copy. In the latter you will find the whole of Dowler's case, if you have not already had a paper from Mr. Hunter; and in the former, there is a complete confirmation of it by Mrs. Clarke, as well as other excellent evidence. Mr. Finnerty moved, this day, in the court of King's Bench for leave to defer his appearance at the bar till the return of Major Hogan; and Lord Ellenborough, they say, granted it immediately in a manner that was most favour-ably construed by every one present. Be that as it may, we have no particular inclination to have ours delayed, & shall leave it to the Duke himself. What blessings are truth & a good conscience! These, my dear love, be assured, will always make me patient & even happy in the worst prison I can /---/ inhabit; and these too will, I trust, for the remainder of my life bind fast in your arms
Your affectionate Henry.
