I have just had a few lines from Lady Byron, <2> who I am sorry to say has by illness been obliged to delay going to Brighton till after the 20th she was writing to Dr King at the time my letter reached her, & prepared him for seeing you – She adds that she has reason to believe that Dr K’s meditations have lately produced some discoveries that may be valuable in your case – If you do not discover his residence I will request a card of his may be left for you at Brighton –
