335. Robert Bloomfield to Mr Lane, 9 May
The Editor of the Pocket Magazine has been favoured with a
polite letter from Mr. Lane, of Biggleswade, enclosing the following copy of
a letter from Mr. Bloomfield to Mr. Lane, on the subject of our
correspondent Beppo's enquiries.  In the hope that the publication of it may
gratify his readers, and be serviceable to Mr. Bloomfield, the Editor
inserts Mr. Bloomfield's letter. Mr. Lane is requested to accept his thanks
for the trouble his which he has so politely taken.
Shefford, Beds. May 9, 1819.
I feel obliged to you for the perusal of the Magazine, and your
offer of writing to the Editor. Letters addressed to me here will reach me until
Michaelmas next, when I mean to return to London. I thank the parties unknown,
and wish to inform them I am not in distress, except as to
very moderate health in general, and worse sight. Numerous friends have been
very kind in their subscriptions for my benefit, particularly my countrymen of
Suffolk. If there should be still other persons able and desirous to add to the
list, their cash may be left at Messrs. Rogers and Co., Bankers, Clements Lane,
or deposited in my pocket, in which there is yet plenty of room. I hope to
publish again in the ensuing winter and am, Sir,
Your's, very respectfully
Address: To Mr. Lane.
