The Works of the Rev. Jonathan Swift/Volume 11/From John Barber to Charles Ford - 1


SIR,
LAMBETH HILL, JULY 6, 1714.
 


I THANKFULLY acknowledge the receipt of a packet[2] sent last Sunday. I have shown it only to one person, who is charmed with it, and will make some small alterations and additions to it, with your leave. You will the easier give leave, when I tell you, that it is one of the best pens in England. Pray favour me with a line.

I am, sir,

your most obedient servant,

  1. Endorsed thus by the dean, "John Barber's letter about the pamphlet."
  2. Probably "Free Thoughts on the present State of Affairs."
