3d Jany 1828 –
Your note <1> followed me from yr Grange to Gorman Court, & from Gorman Ct to London so that there have been a great many delays to its delivery – I have written to desire that Miss Aiken may be taken care of for you, & I will answer for your finding her in Sackville St <2> in good order –
I am beginning to have my fears about yr destruction of yr Greek Scio Squadron. It is not confirmed in yr late account from Trieste, & I see by yr Papers that their piracies still continue. There is nothing new but Don Miguel <3> – With my best Compts to Lady Elizabeth & Capt Fielding. <4> believe me ever sincerely yrs
