I am, beyond words, distressed at your statistics! -
Don't you think the Frigate would go on rollers in the Rink - later on! - and then your £150. would come back to you time and times over! -
Now there's an idea! -
I have not the heart, though, [p. 2] to reason with an enthusiast and a discoverer - and so you shall go to the Committee - to whom I will send on your letters -
Could any thing be nicer!
Meanwhile Admiral the complete indifference you show concerning my health - to which I can find no allusion whatever in your letter - influenza notwithstanding - is deeply mortifying! -
and yet - I am, my dear Admiral,
Always, devotedly Yours
