The Shrubbery

Sep 9. 1844.


Having for some years endeavoured to procure a Frank of yours without success, a desire to complete my collection of the autographs of the House of Commons. Together with a fear of not being able to obtain it by other means have induced me to apply to you for an envelope dated during the time You sat in the House Trusting you will excuse this liberty

I have the honour to be Sir,
Your obt Servant
