    dear Sir

I have just returned from London where I have been for a few days, else I should have answered your kind letter sooner. I shall be very happy to receive the balance which you tell me is in your hands, of the sum subscribed for the portrait of Bailie Moir [?] which I painted. I know there was some difficulty in getting up the money at last. Horatio McCulloch was my very intimate friend and I knew R.M., Cooper and Bill Mason and I.M. Donald, very well. Mason was a nephew of the Kembles, his mother being a sister of the great Mrs Siddons. He was a grand heavy looking fellow, but unfortunately took to the bottle and went to the D 1. The last time I saw him was in Tottenham Court road standing against a lampost haranguing a lot of little boys who were evidently bent on mischievous fun with the drunk man, but were awed by the grand Caricature [?] like style of poor Bill. I believe he is dead long ago.

I should very much like to see the Scrap books, and also the portrait of Allan Ramsay, is it Ramsay the father -the Pact [?] s Ramsay the son, the portrait painting.

The first time I'm in Glasgow I'll endeavour to let you know, and perhaps you will kindly show them to me.
Believe me, very truly yours...
