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 services offered me not under his hand indeed but by my
friend whose name you know by the express order 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 — with respect to money matters I am sensible to
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 uncommunicativeness
which I have been guilty of 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 were 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.
