Editor’s Note3065From Edward Blaquiere13 March 1824

My dear Sir,

Many thanks for yr. very kind note and its enclosure,2 which I return after an attentive perusal. My motive for troubling you with a line to day is, to inform you that happening to be with the deputies this morning when Mr. Kinnaird came in to see them, I prevailed on him to go down to the committee with Luriottis—there to settle matters by hook or by crook—I am very sanguine as to the result of this demarche, and I hope to have a good report to make on Monday.3 As to Orlandos, he is very ill, occasioned I really believe in part, by the obstacles which have arisen in the course of his negotiations with the contractors and Committee.—But I trust all will yet be right and that, at all events, no idea of these disputes, will reach the public ear.—

  •   I am, my dear sir, most sincerely and devotedly yours,
  •                                                              E. Blaquiere.

  • Frith Street
  • Saturday 3 o clock
