London. Aug 23rd 1811

To Samuel Whitbread Esq.


If among nobler persuits you should find a leisure hour for idle reading, the accompanying little Volumn [1]  is at least new, and lately has been the child of my fancy. If you Sir, know the country of which it treats you will be the better judge of its merit or demerit. The Revd Mr Taylor will bring you this, and

I am Sir most respectfully your

Very Humble Servant

Robt Bloomfield

Shepherd & Shepherdess, City Road
