Tuesday After

noon Novbr 27th 1827


I feel pleasure in informing you that your Servant has so much recovered within the last few days, as to be able to leave this to night for Bampton, he intends stopping at Taunton tomorrow and on the following morning proceeds to Bath at which place I have advised him to try the warm bath for a few days. Should he not improve from his present state within ten days, it would be advisable for him to apply a blister over the bruised part and keep it open for a week, but I am inclined to think this will not be necessary On the other side you will find a statement of my account and allow me to subscribe myself

Your obt humble Servant
