I am surprised and very sorry there has been such a misunderstanding respecting my remaining here, the only way I can at all account for it is your not discovering a letter I sent to you about the Middle of August which you said you would speak about when you came to London and not having seen you I did not know how to act Particularly as you had some Electro Magnetic Apparatus which you strictly charged me not to let any one see, and as I never received any reply I conjectured you were going to sever your operations in that science and Mr Henneman never said I were to leave but when I went to Regent Street there was alway [sic] something to do, so you will I hope see it has been no doing of mine, I mean not by misleading either you or Messrs Henneman & Malone in any way.
Mr Lake was here on Tuesday and said he would put someone into the house on Monday next[.] I suppose he has written to you on the subject.
I have one favour to ask of you sir as there is plenty of room in the house will you be so kind as to let some of my things remain for a short time until I get into something, I return you my sincere Thanks for the kindness you have always shown me and
Remain your Humble servant
