I was at Hendon /in the country/ when your obliging letter arrived /came to/ Dover Street. I was in the country from whence I am but this instant [returned]. My Brother I find has already paid his acknowledgements to you and Mrs B.—We are fortunately disengaged on Sunday and shall with the greatest pleasure avail ourselves of you kind invitation for both days, and I shall come gaping countryman like with my mouth wide open for the political part of the entertainment.
