Autograph Letter Signed ('Geo. Hartley') to 'G. Woolcott Esqre'.

Reverend George Hartley (Methodist preacher?) [George Woolcott (English architect?); acoustic; acoustics]
Publication details: 
17 March 1825; 19 Charlotte Street, Portland Place, London.

4to, 4 pp. Very good on lightly aged paper. Hartley has 'attentively considered' Woolcott's 'plans for your New Church with reference to an opinion of their merits as being calculated to assist the Human Voice in Rhetorical delivery'. He is 'so little of an Architect as to be unable to assist my observations with the technical terms which would facilitate the meaning of my observations', but he will give them as clearly as he can, speaking from his 'long experience in Public Delivery in (I may say) almost all kinds of enclosed spaces'.
