[1] 13 May 1826
My dear Sir
Circumstances having rendered it necessary to recall
my son suddenly to England & his presence being indispensably requisite previous to my brotherʼs departure for India whither he proceeds next month, I request you will send him with as little delay as possible. I reckon that he will be on his way within a few hours after this reaches Bonn Young Johnston, who must have come a few weeks later will take the opportunity of my sonʼs Company & they will travel together The same circumstances will prevent his return to Bonn to resume his studies there I am much hurried & you will excuse the shortness of the letter & of the notice
I am ever
Yours very obedly
HColebrooke
[2] My dear Sir.
I have the pleasure to acknowledge the receipt of your last letter & shall answer it more at length in a short time – as I find, considering the professional views which I have for my son, that he must be in England as I formerly mentioned to you as soon as he is sixteen years old which he will be next month & as I just now learn from Mr Colebrook that he has ordered his son to return immediately to England I avail myself of the opportunity which this circumstance will afford the two young men of travelling together to request that you will send Patrick off along with young Colebrooke. Mr Colebrookes letter is just going to the [3] Port which prevents me from adding more at present than that I am
dear Sir
yours very truthfully
