My dear Sir

I shall be extremely glad if you would send over one of your assistants & as the weather I think is now likely to clear up we shall have more Sun.

You are now only 18 miles from me & a Coach runs every Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday, from the Crown Inn Cheltenham (opposite Lea’s Library) & reaches Broadway in 3 hours, or 2˝. If your Assistant could come tomorrow Evening (the Coach leaves Cheltenham about 4 or ˝ past 4) he could return on Tuesday Morning, if you wanted him.

I should be glad to buy one of your Apparatus, if any are to be sold, & if so, the Assistant could bring it with him, by Stevens’s Broadway Coach from the Crown Inn.

Believe me My dear Sir Very truly Your’s
Thos Phillipps
