March 13th <1>

My dear Talbot – Seeing that your name, at least, is in town, I write to say that I am coming to London for a short time on Monday next; and it is so long since we met that I could even tolerate, I think, your being in your own house for the pleasure of having you there during my stay in London. I am quite in the dark respecting Lady Elisabeth’s <2> whereabouts – so pray let me have one line.

Yours ever
T. Moore


1. The date is overwritten and the superscript indistinct - it could be either the 13th or the 23rd. Moore's Journal shows that he was in London on the 23rd. Additionally, WHFT was in London around the 13th, and in Lacock around the 23rd, confirming the reading of the earlier date.

2. Lady Elisabeth Theresa Feilding, née Fox Strangways, first m Talbot (1773–1846), WHFT’s mother.
