Dear Sir

I am now at London and have bin twice or thrice at Lady Bellasys's but have not had the good fortune to meet her at home: as soon as I do I will give you an account of it. Mr Pulteney1 tells me he has recd. his last Quarterage from Ireland some time since and I find by m[y] Recept [to] Gledstane that he was to have paid the 73li 18s: on the 22d of the last month; so that I will desire the favour of you to call upon the parties concerned. I find by the publick prints that His Grace2 is returning to Dublin and must desire you to give my Humble Respects to Mr Southwell. I am not able to send you any news, our Accounts of forreign and Domestick affaires varying every day. A peace is the general Talk and in a great forwardnesse if we may believe several who are conversant with our first Ministers. I am Ever Sir

  • Your most Faithfull Humble Servant
  • J. Addison

I must beg ye favour of an answer as soon as you have Leisure
