DescriptionThanks for the enquiry after his health - is about to return “to the moderate discharge of Parliamentary business”. Mentions Roberts’ “poor black clients”. Has “not yet had your piece on the Poor Laws read to me” - “you can have no idea how much slower an operation it is, to hear than to read any work”. Hopes to have it read but confesses he is “very unfavourably disposed towards the side of the question which I understand you espouse”. Note in his own hand about a subscription.
