... I was, last Night, with Mr. Concanen, he's a pretty Gentleman, and, to give him no small Compliment, I think, very near your Taste; upon that, I took the Freedom to mention you, and accordingly we both drank your Health, till we a little incommoded our own. Commend me to all Friends, and believe me to be Yours most sincerely,
