From Haydon Hall, near Pinner, Middlesex, to Revd. Samuel Harpur at Coleraine in Ireland, notifying him of the reasons for the postponement of Clarke's visit to Ireland.
He has now left Liverpool for Worcester to preach a sermon for the "distressed chapel". He is hoping to arrive in Ireland before the end of September, and would like in the meantime news of the progress of the house at Port Stuart. Reference is made to obtaining the freehold.
Clarke asks Harpur in cofidence what impression he had made on Mr. C (Cromie?) during their meeting, as he has not received any reply to his letters-a note in a different hand states that Cromie's esteem for Clarke amounted "almost to adoration".
