Abstract:

Saying that he and his wife Elizabeth have just returned from Bristol, where he performed: "My reception from my brethren of the sock & buskin was pleasant, tho I will not answer for its sincerity. My friends of course were happy in the extreme to welcome the conqueror; & all seem'd happy in my success"; writing that their house is ready for them and they will soon begin to settle into married life; discussing the propriety of considering an engagement in London; saying that he is very busy at present preparing for his upcoming benefit; mentioning that he received a letter of congratulations from his uncle Captain Elliston; saying that he has estimated how much money he will need "to release me from those obligations which you have rightly said might be irksome to me" and that he has decided to ask for the "advance of my father's annuity & 50£s more as a loan"; writing that, with this money, "I shall be quite comfortable, entering into Life with as good expectations as young persons in general do"; sending Elizabeth's love to his uncle and their "united duty & regard" to the Martyns and others.
