Shefford Beds July 9th 1822


I thankfully acknowledge the receipt of a Bank post Bill for £20 procured from the Literary Fund by the friendship & interest of Mr. Fitzgerald—I acknowledge it with the feelings which I hope may continue some time longer but I am sadly unwell and have only left for the good my blessing and my prayers.


Most respectfully

Your humble servant

Robt Bloomfield

Address: Mrs Bowden, / 17 Grosvenor Place, / London.
