Miss Vansitart hoped to arrange a meeting with Chase but was unable due to timing. She has sent an appeal to Miss Hanna More who she believes will be happy to see Chase when he reaches Bristol, if she is well enough.




Hanna More, Mr. Wilberforer, Bristol


Dear Sir

I was in hopes that at your return to Town I should have had the pleasure of forwarding to you an appointment from Mr. [Wilberforer] & [Meryl]. I am sorry to say that an [excursion] to Godstone prevents his joining a day at present, you will see by the accompanying note from Mrs. Wilberforer that he is as anxious as you are for an interview, & I hope before you again leave that you will have the gratification of being personally known to each other.

My Butler has sent your appeal to Mrs. Hannah More who will I am sure be delighted to see you if the state of her health permits, when you visit Bristol. You had better, if you please, send her a note what you arrive there & request her to choose the time that best suits her.

I avail myself of your [?] permission to send a small present to your [?] library & with every good wish

I am ever

Dear Sir

Your Sincere Friend

S Vansitart
