Un de mes amis m’a engagé de lui montrer le Microscope de Chevalier <2> avec votre perfectionnement, le Dimanche après midi. Je viendrai donc le prendre Dimanche matin si cela vous est agréable.

Dear Sir,

One of my friends has committed me to showing him the Chevalier Microscope incorporating your improvement, on Sunday afternoon. I will therefore come to collect it on Sunday morning if this is convenient for you.

Yours truly
