30. Robert Bloomfield to Elizabeth Glover, May 1800* 

May 1800

Dear Mother

I am safe in London, and have had several bitts of good fortune; I yesterday had a present of a guinea from a gentleman, a Mr Vaughn, who had read my book, and had desir'd the publisher to send me to his house, I write now to Mr Lofft, and Mr Gedge.

My Master, Mr Davies, have paid me the half-guinea for the coppy which I lent them to read. Natts master mr Jackson have borrow'd a coppy of Natt, and have sent the money.

Remember me kindly to my Father,

Your affectionate Son

Robert Bloomfield
