3pp., 12mo. Bifolium. In fair condition, lightly aged. Note in contemporary hand on reverse of second leaf: 'Honble. Wm. Hill | Brirtish Minister at Naples to Revd Danl Lysons'. He has received Lysons's 'two notes & enquired at the time if your servant waited for my answers & was told that the servant was gone saying no answers were required'. Nevertheless he wishes to assure Lysons that 'we shall be ready for you on Monday but I trust you will have the goodness to excuse my joining your Breakfast party afterwards. From the pressure of business here at all times I can seldom get out till three or four oClock, & at this moment from the great influx of our Countrymen & the absence of the Secy of Legation I am doubly overwhelmed'. He has in addition 'a large Foreign party to dinner which will leave me but little time to get some fresh air after writing all the morning & afternoon.' He hopes Lysons will 'fix some day with Sir James Carnegie' (who married Lysons's daughter).
