Scope and Content

To Mr Bukely thanking him for the 'excellent speech of yr Royal Friend'[King George III?]. He has read the speech again and again with great admiration for it's 'truly xtian speaker'. Few of Charles's friends can hear it without weeping. He feels that the speech would be made complete by an account of the background to it's delivery [an attempt on the life of King George III]. He sets out in detail the questions that such an account should answer.

Bukely's presence at the last concert of the season to be delivered by Charles's sons, would be a great honour.
