Moreton <1>

My dear Henry

I am sorry to give you any more trouble but I find that when I wrote to you the other day I had overlooked another Book in Thorpe’s Catalogue<2> which I am more anxious about than even the others as it is extraordinarily cheap & one I have long been trying to procure – If therefore you wd be so good as to order this to be sent to 5 Bury St also, I shall be very much obliged to you –

6739. Souverains du Monde. <3> &c with plates of Arms – from the Rockingham <4> Collection – 4 vols. 8o – La Haye 1722. 7/6.

I send this note by Henry’s <5> Servant who is going up today, by which means you will receive it Sunday. as I am afraid of any delay for fear the Books should be sold –

Yr aff Cousin
Harriet Frampton.
