My dear Sir,—… 1 Thanks for the mute indications of remembrance we have often had from you. Go on and prosper! that is always our wish (my wife's and mine) for one whom we love well. The unspeakable Book is fairly at press, thank Heaven. In six weeks more my share of business with it will be over for ever and a day! It will be worth little to most men, to all men: except to me the incalculable worth of troubling me no more. I saw Gordon2 since I saw you. My kind remembrances to him.
