My dear friend,

Your favr of the 3rd recd this morning gave me very great pleasure. The 6 Observer and British review, came to me with some more [?], and I have letter for you from Mr. Pratt, but I suppose you have a copy and therefore retain it. I will write to you tomorrow, to remain at the Post office Leeds, and inform you particularly of what has taken place here. I will not omit however to mention now that the Warden has become our friend and subscribed 5 pounds and wrote such a note as assists me very much. Dr. Smith has subscribed 3 pounds and desired his best respects to you and to say that he most heartily wished you success. I am going on well but slowly. My applications are confined to the leading men, such as [Magistrates], Church [?]. If at present the Borough[?] is my friend will subscribe, but more of this tomorrow.

Lord Kenyon’s name is of great service being considered one the Bartlett’s Building Pillars. I would write more but plan this may not reach you. I hope you will go from Leeds to Huddersfield where much good can be done. If you should not get an introduction to B[?] Haigh Esqu. of that place I will write to his mate who is my particular friend and desire him to introduce you. From thence you will do well to go to Halifax, and return to Platt for a few days before you go to London. I want names of subscribers from other places, and can give some whom you inform me where to address you that will be of service. I expect support from the Fellows of the Collegiate Church as they have the cause under consideration.

In hatse Dr Sir yours sincerely

T. Wiggin
