Scope and content

Has Owen's favour of the 6th, but thought Owen would have spared his hand until he had quite shaken off the fatigue of following the Court. The King hunts most of the week in New Forest and intends to be at Windsor the 17th; but the Queen not until the 24th, unless this raw, weeping weather changes resolutions. The Lord Chamberlain has made his peace and has gone to Bath to re-enter on the execution of his office. The French complain much of the scandal cast upon them as if they had shared in aiding the Turk in this campaign. They hear at present but of gold chains sent to the German officers, ere long (it will be) of hempen or at best silken ones sent to the Grand Vizier. The Duke of Berwick was cured of his Hungarian ague by the pleasant surprise of the successful battle ... Old Corinth and Lacedemon and Epidaurus are fallen to the Venetians and the Bassas are hunted like foxes from one fastness to another. The Chief of the Morea has scampered away to Cubaea alias Negropont. Serjeant Price of the Park is dead. PS Has often enjoyed Owen's company, but never so much as two nights ago in that philosophical Elysium when the writer's poor, empty, wandering thoughts were dressed up in all the verdant circumstances of delight that Epicurus - the author - Owen and the writer could fancy.
