Dear Sir,—On my return the other day from a five months’ excursion, I was gratified by a note from you, expressive of your esteem, and a present of two volumes of fables from the great and worthy Mr Baldwin, to whom I send my thanks, with the hope that he will continue the career he has begun, of writing books so well calculated to benefit the rising generation.

“With respect to your note of Sunday, I have only to observe that you are welcome to stay in the house till you have perfectly suited yourself with another, and when the golden cloud descends, that some drops of it would be very very acceptable at Kentish town.—With respects to Mrs Godwin, I remain, dear Sir, your much obliged,

Leonora Knapp.”
