Editor’s NoteEditor’s Note1214To William Wilberforce19 November 1796 (Aet 48)

Q.S.P. – Nov. 19 1796

The inclosed,2 my dear Friend, contains, besides a plan for future operations, the substance of the conference of Wednesday. I am to attend Mr Rose on Tuesday at ½ after 11: and, as he is pg 308apprised that ¼ of an hour may be requisite, I hope the matter will then be settled. I mention the time in hopes that if you happen to be back by that time, you will have the goodness to inform me: not that I know of any specific call for your assistance, but only that there may be a use in having, and at any rate a comfort in knowing that one has, a friend at hand.

Tittle Tattle about the conference as much as you have a curiosity for, when we meet. Lucifer humble in comparison of you know who.
