ricardo to dumont1
My friend Mr. Mill has offered me a pleasure which I cannot but eagerly embrace, an introduction to your acquaintance. He dines with me on friday next2 and has given me hopes that you will be willing to accompany him. I write these few lines to assure you that I shall feel highly honoured with your visit, and promise myself much pleasure in the discussion of some of the points of the ingenious MS which I have been reading.3
We have beds both for you and Mr. Mill; and I hope you will be in no hurry to quit me on Saturday. If you kindly consent to my wishes will you have the goodness to meet Mr. Mill at my office No. 16 Throgmorton Street at ½ past 3 on friday, from whence we will perform our journey together.
I remain Dear Sir Your obedt. and obliged Servt.
New Grove Mile End 6th. Jany. 1811
