Sir" : 1 autograph letter signed : 19 Jun 1833 : (MISC 3953) : from Peach Field Lodge : in the hand of an amanuensis; begins, "Unequal as I have been for some time to communicate my thoughts, but by the aid of an amanuensis -- my disability has greatly encreased, by the accident last week of being overturned in my garden wheeled chair which alarming as it was -- by the blessing of God, on the prompt means, used by Mr. Addison -- has removed the sense of danger ..." Mounted in the Agatha Hogsbottom autograph album. Shelved with oversized manuscript volumes.
