Mr. Nathan.

In consequence of the Government having granted a pension to Mr. Leigh Hunt, for whose benefit the intended performances at Covent Garden Theatre were to have taken place, they are relinquished for the present. The Merry Wives of Windsor will certainly be postponed for a long time; but I have every reason to believe that we shall act Every Man in His Humour at Liverpool and Manchester, toward the end of July; and in that case, all you were to have done for THAT play, will require to be done, still.

As soon as this Liverpool and Manchester business is settled--which I have no doubt it will be, in the course of this next week--I will write to you positively, on the subject. In the meantime I shall be glad if you will, either tonight or tomorrow morning, send up to No. 1 Chester Place Regents Park (for I have just come home from abroad, and am not in my own house) for my Bobadil's dress, which wants smartening up a little. There is a piece of armour--a gorget--with it, which will need to be well burnished. Please not to send later than tomorrow morning, or the servants will have gone with me into Kent.
