My Dear Reynolds

There are two things which tease me here--one of them Crips, and the other that I cannot go with Tom into Devonshire--however I hope to do my duty to myself in a week or so; and then I'll try what I can do for my neighbour--now is not this virtuous? on returning to Town--I'll damn all Idleness--indeed, in superabundance of employment, I must not be content to run here and there on little two-penny errands--but turn Rakehell, i e go a ma〈s〉king or Bailey will think me just as great a Promise Keeper as he thinks you--for myself I do not,-- and do not remember above one Complaint against you for matter o' that--Bailey writes so abominable a hand, to give his Letter a fair reading requires a little time: so I had not seen, when I saw you last, his invitation to Oxford at Christmas--I'll go with you. You know how poorly Rice was--I do not think it was all corporeal--bodily pain was not used to keep him silent. I'll tell you what; he was hurt at what your Sisters said about his joking with your Mother, he was, soothly to sain--It will all blow over. God knows, my Dear Reynolds, I should not talk any sorrow to you-- you must have enough vexations--so I won't any more--If I ever start a rueful subject in a Letter to you--blow me! Why don't you--Now I was agoing to ask a very silly
