Altho’ I would not on any account encroach on a moment of your time that may be better usefully employed, I would not if I could lose any opportunity of having a little of your conversation, and as you seemed to think you might be able to call here this morning I write to say that should it be convenient & lie in your way to any place you may be going to, that it is not above five minutes walk beyond Mr. Marriott’s and that the bearer can attend you. My friend & I are obliged to go out soon after eleven this morning. I send two copies of the little Tract you wished for.

I wish too to say how very much I feel obliged by your interesting Mrs. Chase’s letter to me. I shall copy out the parts of it for Lady Rosse—and Mr. Morse’s—and leave all myself at Mr. Marriott’s for your Revd tomorrow. I must not trespass on your time. My friend begs & offers his respectful regards with mine. I am Rt Revd Dear Sir

with the greatest esteem

Most faithfully yrs

Duff Macfarlane
