26. Capel Lofft to George Bloomfield, 19 March 1800* 

Troston 19 Mar: 1800

Dear Sir,

I have the pleasure to inform you that your Brother's Poem will speedily be introduced to Lord Thurlow. This I greatly wished and had been endeavouring: but I am happy by a letter receivd this evening to learn that it is in a train of being done from another quarter.

I remain yours, with great esteem,

Capel Lofft

Your brother, were he in the country, would sympathise with the lambs and their poor mothers. This is a dreadfully trying season for them.

Address: Mr. Geo. Bloomfield

* BL Add. MS 28268, f. 30; published Hart, p. 5–6. George Bloomfield annotated and forwarded this letter to his mother in early June (see Letter 31). BACK
