Abstract:

Assuring him that he is doing everything in his power to convince William Combe to pay Romney's father, the painter George Romney; explaining that "Mr Coombe has been in the Kings Bench [...] His going into the Kings Bench, arose from a trifling Literary Affair -- but as you may suppose, it has considerable deranged him. But not by any means, as I understand, to prevent his paying your Father, which he promised me, should be in a short Time"; writing that he will cover the debt if Combe does not pay; urging Romney to write to Combe himself or to send a "Mr Green" to see him; adding "but surely Sir, we had better not inform your Father, that he has been in the Kings Bench, as it would only serve to agitate him, & do no good"; referring to his own obligations to George Romney ("they are many, & will never be forgot"); mentioning that he was recently at the home of Lord Warwick and heard from the housekeeper that Lady Warwick was anxious to have her "large Picture"; suggesting that it be sent to her "as it is finished, & will amount to a good deal"; adding that he has sent Romney's letter on to Combe and that he should expect a response from Combe "in a Post or two."
