Lady Charnwood, An Autograph Collection, 120.
Canongate, Edinburgh, Jan. 1779
I am extremely sorry that all the copies of my Book that I ever was possessed of have been long ago given away, a single one excepted of each of the two editions1 which I am obliged to keep for my own use in order to mark the corrections or additions which I may hereafter have occasion to make. I should otherwise have been very happy to have presented one to your Lordship. I have the honour to be, with great respect,
My Lord, Your Lordship’s Most obedient and most humble Servant,
