Horace tells Chase that Sir Acland is eager to see him and will postpone his trip if Chase confirms he will be able to meet.




Sir Thomas Acland, Warren's Hotel, Waterloo Place


My very dear Friend

The great Desire which Sir Tho. Acland has to see Bishop Chase makes him desirous of postponing his Journey from Tuesday to Friday that He may meet Him here on Thursday but as it is a Matter of much Moment his putting off his Journey. He would not do it but with a Certainty of meeting Him: therefore if the Bishop puts off coming here to a more distant Day, Acland would wish to known if by a Line directed to Him at Warren’s Hotel as early as you can let him know if tomorrow & I should like to be informed of it also -- Warren’s Hotell [sic] is in Waterloo Place.

I am My Dearest Friend

Yours most devotedly

H. Horace

Thursday Evening

June 20th

As it is of Importance for Acland to know as speedily as He can whether the Bishop keeps to the Appointment made by you you will take can that it is conveyd to him as soon as you know it.
