Q.S.P. 6 Feb. 95 Friday.

I hope you dont forget to give Mr Dundas a jog now and then against Sunday—I saw Mr Long yesterday at ½ past 3 he had not heard any thing from Mr Pitt.

If distant mischances have their proper effect, it will be to dispose him no longer to struggle against doing the good which it is so compleatly in his power to do at home, which on his part requires neither time nor study—nor any thing but one single word, which can not be either refused or delayed without trampling on every obligation of honour generosity and good faith. Mr Dundas saw a billet-doux from my Banker—When you hear next from me, it may probably be from some Jail, unless Mr. Dundas finds something substantial to tell me of by Sunday.

Can Mr Pitt so far delude himself as to believe, that when my pg 116case comes to be known, either the Country or Parliament can be kept from drawing their inferences from small concerns to great?
