Scope and Content

From Robert Brennan in the Strand, London, to Charles Wesley in Chesterfield Street. He expects that every note of the concertos [by Charles junior] will be engraved by the end of next week. A month has been allowed for 'printing and drying them properly'. If an ornamental title or dedication is required, then this should be done by hand. In a postscript he asks that 'Ruffian Sam' be warned that Brennan will soon pay him a visit armed with a claymore [sword], for 'I am determined to cut off any part of his brow hand elbow that gets behind his back when he fiddles. I cannot bear to see him imitate a Taylor'.
