I have no objection to your advertising, if you wish to do so. I consider business hours to be from nine to six, or nine hours If therefore you only give me three hours of the day, the salary would be in proportion to the time forty pounds per annum But as you would derive no benefit from that arrrangement, I am willing to give sixty pounds

I do not understand what you say about lodgings I do not think that lodgings near Regent Street would be come to much more expensive than those It cannot matter much to you where they are, provided they do not cost you more than you pay at your present. ones
