Thomas Gray to Christopher Alderson, 23 June 1770
To The Revd Mr Alderson of Aston near Sheffield Yorkshire
A certain letter was sent me from hence to Aston on this day (Saturday) se'nnight, wch probably reach'd Sheffield on Tuesday last (19 June). as it has not yet reach'd my hands, & I should be very sorry to lose it, I must beg you to make enquiry about it, to pay whatever it is charged (a double & perhaps triple postage) & new direct it back to me at Pembroke-Hall, Cambridge. Mr Mason will repay you for me.
Forgive me this trouble, as I know not to whom else I could write about it, & believe me.
Mr Brown & Mr Foljambe desire their compliments.
