not a sheet of paper handy--so I can only beg pardon for this scrap--and thank you for your kindness which will be of little use for I will steal out of town in a day or two-- excuse this shabby affair.

As the Lamp light crept along the following things were discovered. "long heath brown furze"2--Hurdles here and there half a Mile--Park palings when the Windows of a House were always discovered by reflection--One Nymph of Fountain N.B. Stone--lopped Trees -- Cow ruminating -- ditto Donkey -- Man and Woman going gingerly along--William seeing his Sisters over the Heath--John waiting with a Lanthen for his Mistress--Barbers Pole--Docter's Shop--However after having had my fill of these I popped my Head out just as it began to Dawn--N.B. this tuesday Morn saw the Sun rise--of which I shall say nothing at present--I felt rather lonely this Morning at breakfast so I went and unbox'd a Shakspeare -- "Here's my Comfort"3--I went immediately after Breakfast to the Southampton Water where I enquired for the Boat to the Isle of Wight as I intend seeing that place before I settle--it will go at 3 so shall I after having taken
