My great constituent elements are Pride and Passion: the first I have endeavoured to humanize into integrity and honour; the last makes me a Devotee to the warmest degree of enthusiasm, in Love, Religion, or Friendship; either of them or all together as I happen to be inspired



Mauchline, 19th July 1787
Dear Sir,
I have just got a letter from Scot the Bookbinder, where he tells me he needs a little money at present.      I have written to him to call on you; & I beg you will pay him his account or give him part payment as you see proper.
When Mr Creech returns, I beg you will me know by first convenient Post.   
I am, Dear Sir, your very humble servant
