I must in general terms tell you whether you believe me or not, that I do not
regret any one step of any importance which I have taken since I have been
in this country. My late excursion I am perfectly satisfied with.
You may perhaps still doubt of the offers I spoke of, but I again assure
you most sincerely that I had such terms offered me not under his hand
indeed but by my friend whose name you know by the express orders of C.
my answer was such as rather to decline than to refuse these. It was not
however any sense of my insufficiency for the executing the business that made me do so.
I must put off at least till another post, I have just thought of something
I must do directly. A word or two only. I declined C's offers in general
because for many reasons he is not the man who must do my business.
He is not to be trusted to. With respect to many matters. I am
sensible to the greatest degree of my father's kindness in making me the
allowance you speak of and as I have got now into the most oeconomical
management possible I shall be able to make shift till I know my
fate here, and I have a pis aller by which I am certain of
doing something elsewhere. I shall write further about the incommunicativeness
which I have been guilty, but then after that as you
cannot assist me I shall plague you no more with my expectations
or disappointments till all is certain.

Adieu be a little more indulgent

There are 3 4 letters Mr Shairpe just now tells me sent to Moscow.
but I expect them back again every post.

There was no letter in the box with the books &c. but I suppose
the account of the contents is in a letter sent by the post.
