<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Sir Robert Herries to John Dickenson, relating to Dickenson and his family's return to London. Sir Robert writes that they will be more amongst their friends there than they were in the country and hopes that there will be more chance of his seeing him in Cheltenham now. Herries notes that London has increased in size since Dickenson last saw it, and that even in Cheltenham a 'Tail road' is being built to Gloucester, 'by which means we should have our coals cheaper'. Sir Robert continues to write on his health and how the weather affects it, on friends, including Lady Cuynghame, and on Sir Francis Burdett being in the Tower of London until he 'learns to be more quiet in his dispositions' [ 1770-1844, politician, imprisoned in the tower after a speech against the imprisonment of a 'radical'].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Cheltenham.</p>
