Hon. Sir,

I received your favour in due course. I am extremely obliged to you for the trouble you have taken on my account & I hope you will excuse me in this application; from what you said in your letter I expected to have received instructions as to our embarkation but as a fortnight has elapsed since you were so kind to write to me & having had no intimation respecting our departure it makes me very uneasy as myself & friends are now living upon the money which should be reserved until we arrive at our destination. I should for ever esteem it a favour conferred upon me if you would use your influence in letting us not be put off to a distant period as the whole of us are in lodgings having sold all our effects. Should you think it necessary to write to me again I shall be obliged by your favouring me with any particulars that may come to your knowledge as to the place of embarkation &c and with thanks for your former kindness I am, Hon. Sir

Your obd't hbl sevt
