Title: ALs to William Ewart
May The Twenty Third 1841.
My Dear Sir.
I am much obliged to you for your note, and for your Kind attention.
I am not likely to see Mrs. [Wilby?] whom I have never seen in my life, but when I sent the Petition to her for her signature, I was extremely careful to caution her against expecting that anything would come of its presentation. I respectfully stated the same thing to her daughter when she asked me to draw it – and I fully believe that they perfectly understand the real state of the case.
