12 Paper Buildgs

June 30 1830

Dear Talbot -

I am very much obliged by your little volume of Legendary Tales, <1> which I shall take down to enjoy at my leisure at Hartham Park, far from the noise & smoke of this uncongenial region. I wish you could find it convenient to run down with me for a week, & repose on your laurels under the shade of mine. I start tomorrow & should rejoice to see you in the York House Coach. I was in hopes of Moore, <2> but he cannot escape from the claws of the Printer's Devils.

Very thankfully yours

H. H. Joy.

P.S. You can return as soon as the dulness of the present state of things is passed.


1. WHFT, Legendary Tales, in Verse and Prose (London: James Ridgway, 1830).

2. Thomas Moore (1780-1852), Irish poet.
