My Dear Sir
Though nothing can be more tempting than the company you propose I should dine with to–morrow; yet the state of my health, the coldness of the weather, and my fear of bringing back some of my old complaints; by venturing to dine at so great a distance, oblige me to beg you would excuse me. It is a great mortification to me; but necessity must be submitted to. Remember me most respectfully to Lady Sophia and ever believe me
My Dear Sir most affectionately Yours
