Abstract:

Thanking his uncle for his letter and writing that it gives him hopes of "regaining that esteem I have so foolishly forfeited"; assuring him that "I have not (on my honour) any intention of marrying at present"; admitting that he has met "a young Lady whose virtues & abilities have inspired the highest admiration in my breast, & of whom I have made mention in letters to different persons"; saying, however, that if he ever spoke of marrying her, it was "in a moment of levity to my father" and not meant to be taken seriously; writing "I have err'd once, & that is sufficient. The delusive phantoms that led me astray are vanish'd & I perceive that real happiness is not found by outward appearance"; saying that, if he ever considered marrying, he would certainly consult with his friends beforehand; writing that he hopes he has satisfied his uncle's doubts and that "no further stop will be put to the happiness I shall experience in a correspondence with my much rever'd Uncle"; sending his "love & duty" to "my Uncle & Aunt Martyn" (probably Dr. Thomas Martyn and his wife); adding that letters for him should be directed to York.
