309. Robert Bloomfield to Hannah Bloomfield, 17 February 1817*
Shefford. Feb 17. 1817
My Dear Girl.
I am, after all this writing to Master Hawyes and Mr Weston, driven into candle light on Monday night, and therefore cannot write so freely as I otherwise would.—
I shall not be immediately forced to send to Suffolk, for money, perhaps not at all.—I enclose you two pounds as a momentary help; I know it is not enough, but you will reason on the matter and pocket it till you can get somthing better.—
A second Edition of Davy is printing.—Neighbour peppercorn lately sent me a Note saying that I should recieve by his cart 2 [illegible word] Bushels of Coals as a present from some one, and that I might hear afterwards who was the donor. At present I have not learnt, but think it is Mr Forster of Biggleswade.—
Address: Miss Bloomfield / Twickenham
