believe I shall return straight in which case I shall not be absent
from Petersbourg above a month. This depends however
many circumstances which I cannot enter into a detail of. Be satisfied
in the assurance that it is not the pleasure of the present moment that
I pursue. My friend Ples: is very ill of a disorder which though
not immediately very dangerous yet plagues him a good deal every now
and then. It is the asthma. What are the remedies and regimen
usually employed in England? He frequently reads over your letters
to him with the strongest sensation at the pleasure of having received
such a letter from you but of shame at the same time for not
having answered it. It is his constant occupation and the habit he
has been now for some time in of neglecting by necessity his own
affairs that seems to have prevented him.

Mr Carew is still here and will stay I believe the winter at least
He is a man certainly of great abilities a vast stock of knowledge
and from all opportunities I have had of judging, of a most excellent
heart. He is as much attached to his country as possible and
Sir James cannot but find a great satisfaction in his political assistance.

I am affraid you wont read all this

Jany 13th 1781 OS.
