Winterbourne, Bonchurch.
  Monday Twenty Seventh August
My Dear Stone.
  It occurs to me to propose, unless you and Egg shall have finally settled your arrangements, that you defer your visit, so as to arrive here on Saturday the 15th of September. The advantage of this arrangement would be, that it would enable us to clear off some stragglers by whom we are, and are to be, unexpectedly invaded, and would find me with my work done and wholly disengaged; which, in a place like this where there are many little trips to be made, would be a great consideration.
  Not being sure that you are in town, I address a counterpart of this note to Egg, care of Frith, at Hastings – in the hope of catching one of you, that you may take counsel together. But if your plans for coming at once are concluded, pray understand most expressly and explicitly that we shall be delighted to see you now, and that I only suggest this change as the better of two good things.
  Ever Affectionately
Frank Stone Esquire.
