My dearest love,
Business presses upon me so much, that I am compelled to break my promise with you this afternoon; but I will be with you really soon on Sunday morning, and ask forgiveness at your dear eyes. The paper of today contains little worth reading. The Chronicle says that the Duke  has been advised to resign, & that a paper or some such thing was actually drawn up for him to that import, but that he declines making any concession. Be assured, that however the little great may make a stir on such matters, however corrupt politicians make prate, & pragmatize, & proul about "seeking whom they may devour," reason will have it's say after all. Mr. B. F.  has been with me this morning, & I am happy to say that he was much better as to a gentlemanly temperance. God bless you and Your Henry.
