41. Robert Bloomfield to George Bloomfield, 29 October 1800* 

London 29th Oct 1800

Dear George

I dined at Mr Hoods on Sunday and find my affairs stand nearly as follows

Total cost of 3 first editions 481 odd shillings
When all sold will produce joint profit 613 odd shillings
Out of Hood's half of the profits  
he proposes to give me for these  
three Editions, 50, 0
and another 50, 0

for the next three, this hundred pounds is more than I had expected. I am to draw on him for my wants at Bury. You may inform Mr Smy that I should be glad to live at Bury, and if the situation and conditions could be still further explaind to me I should know how to proceed as to bringing my furniture, what part of it may be required and what not, are there stoves or ranges fix'd? & c &c.

I have I believe more in family than Mr Smy. What room should I have to stow them in?

Your Brother Robert
