Scope and Content

From [William Legge, Earl of Dartmouth] to Charles Wesley. He liked Wesley's poem very much and would like to have a copy of it, but he must disagree with those of Wesley's friends, who are urging it's publication without any amendments, for he has spotted several mistakes. 'Both you and I would do justice to those who do not think with us'. Legge is certain that 'the share' given to Lord R_m(?) and Mr B_ke is not in fact due to them.

He is not yet in a condition to bear the heat of a crowded room, and cannot therefore be with the Wesleys tonight. If he goes out tomorrow morning it will be to St. James's

Are the morning concerts [by Charles junior and Samuel Wesley] held on a weekly or fortnightly basis, and what time do they start.
