I snatch a moment from my political enjoyments this week (for I am writing about our noble-hearted countrymen at Paris) to say that Miss Kent & myself will most certainly be with you tomorrow evening, & that we defy Mozart & all his works to make us stop away. - As to the “love” which the ladies send me, it is a dangerous thing to make presents to poets, especially such presents; as I shall accordingly shew them by keeping all they have got to spare. What would you & Simpkins say (I think Miss Hale said his name was Simpkins), if I had not made this very generous division? - Mrs. H. begs her kindest remembrances, & is going on exceedingly well, - & so is the little stranger.
