TC TO JOHN MURRAY
On Saturday gone a week I had the honour to write to you about that Manuscript of mine. Not receiving any answer I am afraid the Note may have miscarried.
My request was that in case you consented to engage in a new treaty with regard to that work, you would let me know at what time I might look for your decision; if no time could be fixed, then (my time being very limited, and much of it already spent) I desired to have the Ms. forthwith returned.
Pray have the goodness to let me hear from you on this matter as speedily as possible. I am sorry to seem importunate, but Time, as I said, will not wait.
I remain, / Sir, / Your obedt Servt /
4. Ampton Street
