TitleWilliam Wilberforce to Samuel Roberts (at 8 Ave Maria Lane, 2.30pm) written from Westminster (own hand)
DescriptionIn health he is better but not yet well. Next time Roberts comes to London he must “take a bed with us”. If Mr Remington is in London suggests a new petition be prepared, though regrets the loss of the old one; Sheffield’s interests ought to be represented. Are books lent from the library at Sheffield? Begs some dealers in cutlery to supply 5 or 6 knives including 3 penknives and a garden knife but not the “complicated engines which contain… multa in parvo”. Also 3 or 4 razors and ½ dozen hones.
