[1] Dear Monsieur Schlegel
Allow me to present to you a countryman for whom
Mr Austin & I have a particular esteem & indeed a long friendship – Mr Otway Cave – member of Parlt heir to a peerage, & what is better a constant supporter of all good & enlightened measures – free from prejudices [2] & an excellent, humane, liberal Irish landlord. He is also an accomplished scholar & though he has printed nothing, a poet. If he had been poor & industrious, instead of rich & lazy the world wd have known him as one.
I donʼt know if
Ms Cave will be able to call on you, as I regret to say she is [3] very unwell. If she does I bespeak, though needlessly, your polite reception for her. You are only too good to us wanderers.
We go to
Berlin in a few weeks. Shall we see you there?
Most truly yourʼs
dear Sir
