Today's Quote

And now I believe I. . . may disport myself as I can on my Canterbury visit.—It was a very agreable visit. There was everything to make it so: Kindness, conversation, & variety, without care or cost. . . . I hope that you do not much mind not going to the Newbury Races.—I am withstanding those of Canterbury. Let that strengthen you.
