James Winchester Posted June 26, 2017 Share Posted June 26, 2017 George HardwickEarl of Chichester Dear George, I can't tell you how glad I was to hear you were come to London this season. The roads were rough for many of us but now it seems a great many old friends are gathered. I do hope that the year has been most kind to you and yours. We must catch up, I insist! And I shan't take no for an answer. Quite apart from the pleasure of your good company, I have a question to ask you about art, a subject on which I am woefully ignorant. Do tell me that you're free some day or evening in the near future, though if this reaches you before you go out this morning and you are not otherwise occupied, I shall be lunching at the Red Lion today, and would be delighted if you'd join me. Yours, whether you like it or not, Sir James, Doctor Winchester Baron Wentwood The note was hand delivered first thing in the morning by a servant of the house. James was in a playful mood by the tone of the missive, which was accompanied by a fine fruit cake, and a bottle of brandy to have with it.
