when I know more and have though〈t〉 a little more, to give you my ideas of the difference between the scotch and irish1--The two Irishmen I mentioned were speaking of their treatment in England when the Weaver said--'Ah you were a civil Man but I was a drinker' Remember me to all--I intend writing to Haslam--but dont tell him for fear I should delay--We left a notice at Portpatrick that our Letters should be thence forwarded to Glasgow-- Our quick return from Ireland will occasion our passing Glasgow sooner than we thought--so till further notice you must direct to Inverness
