From JAMES HUTTON
MS., RSE 3 Gen. 1035/151; unpubl.
Edinburgh, November [undated]1
[. . .] from this conspectus such as it is if you can form any opinion pray write me and let us know how you are doing—where do you propose to winter?—if in an enemies country it is almost time you were making good your quarters; if you are stoick enough to judge of the season of the year from the corns in Fife you will now imagine that harvest is near done—I send you this flap in the ear to inform that novem[be]r is begun and that there is now little danger of frost till after the new year; so if you have anything to do with what is without you may conduct yourself accordingly; if it is otherwise and you are made up for sleep and vision, let me know when I should waken [y]ou again. Yours Jas. Hutton
[1 ]The letter was posted in Edinburgh, because the postmark is a Bishop Mark confined to the G.P.O. in that city. The mark also shows ‘NO’ for November. The possible years are 1767–72 and 1777 in view of Smith’s periods at Kirkcaldy.
