3pp, 12mo. Bifolium. In fair condition, lightly aged, but with glue from mount on blank reverse of second leaf, causing show-through and ruckling. The letter begins: 'Sir | I am almost ashamed that you took the trouble to send me the particular[s] of the magnificent run I was so fortunate to enjoy. | It was certainly one of the longest and pleasantest I ever saw.' His 'only regret' is that he did not finish 'that charming day by coming down' with Colville and the Prince of Wale. After 'that long galop [sic]', his first thought was of his horse, 'and uncrowded Aylesbury tempted me away'.
