My dear Sir,

Your Letter of acknowledgement was duly received; and I am much annoyed at the trouble which the non-appearance of the other ½ Note3 has occasioned, particularly as Mrs Wordsworth, who kindly undertakes these matters for me, has no distinct recollection of having forwarded it; but as it is not found in the place where She usually makes such deposits, She thinks She must have sent it to the Post-office. As you hold the half-note, perhaps it might not be inconvenient to you to get it replaced by a whole one, upon proper application to the Bank. I understand this may be done; otherwise please to return it, and I shall, through some other Friend endeavour to do so.

  • Believe me                 
  • dear Sir            
  • with much respect        
  • faithfully yours      
  • Wm Wordsworth  

pg 261After the above was written Mrs W. has found the Note, and she begs you would excuse the trouble given through the fault of her recollection.—
