Keswick. 21 May. 1819.
I thank you for the pleasure which I have received from the pleasant sequel of your Banquet.  It reached me this morning, & I admire in it the same playful elegance & talent which ensured for its predecessor so favourable a reception from the public.
Believe me Sir
Yr obliged & faithful servant
