The Works of the Rev. Jonathan Swift/Volume 11/From Henry St. John to Jonathan Swift - 1

Sunday, past twelve, Jan. 7, 1710-11.

THERE are few things I would be more industrious to bring about than opportunities of seeing you. Since you was here in the morning, I have found means of putting off the engagement I was under for to morrow; so that I expect you to dine with me at three o'clock. I send you this early notice, to prevent you from any other appointment.

I am ever, rev. sir,

your obedient humble servant,
