Haydon show'd me a letter he had received from Tripoli — Ritchey was well and in good Spirits, among Camels, Turbans, Palm Trees, and Sands — You may remember I promised to send him an Endymion which I did not — however he has one — you have one — One is in the Wilds of America — the other is on a Camel's back in the plains of Egypt.
