315. Robert Bloomfield to Charles Bloomfield, 24 May 1817*
London. Saturday night. May 24. 1817
I have been day after day disappointed in getting an answer from
the school, sometimes they were too busy, once I was too late, and yesterday I
had the first real sick head-ache which I have encountered since I came from
home,—but I have this morning learnd that you may attend there when you please,
and the sooner the better. I therefore wish you to attend to the following
requests, or orders if you please.—First.—Write to Mr Williamson to this effect.
'Sir. My Father is desirous of knowing the address of a printer in London who is
your tenant, and who lives over Grays Inn Lane, wishing to enquire of him for a
suitable lodging and board for me when trying my fortune at the school in
Baldwin's Gardens, &c.' Secondly, Expect a parcel by Tuesdays Coach, and
when you receive it inform Mr Barker that you mean to come to town with him next
morning—but mind,— if you cannot come then, I shall look for you next day, or
the next.—bring all your linnen with you, and come on
Wednesday if you can, as you will recieve by parcel money to pay your passage
&c—I will try to meet you at the Inn. Your sisters are well, and I must
hasten at past six oclock to close this and run to the post office. If I find
that I have omitted any thing I will write it by parcel.
Give my love to those who love me, and brush up your very best senses and
resolutions, for your future life may be govern'd by the step you are now
Address: Mr Charles Bloomfield / Shefford. / Beds. / May 24. 1817.
