Scope and Content

To Charles Wesley junior. He presumes that his letter of yesterday 'for Burgum's[?] music paper' arrived safely. His son should be on his guard if he arrives here, for 'Burgum's scheme for oratorio's will never do'. Charlie should not be bothering with either Burgum or Washboro for he is no match for either of them.

Has Charlie heard writing from Windsor [Castle]? He should not expect too much ' writing from that quarter'.

His love should be passed on to Sarah and Samuel.
