Thomas Gray to Horace Walpole, [14 February 1759]
To The Honble Horace Walpole
I have been confined at home for this last fortnight with a fit of the Gout, & was but just got out again in a great shoe, when I call'd on you. I go to Cambridge early tomorrow morning, & can not (I'm afraid) today have it in my power to see you. if you will write to me, I shall be glad. early in March I must of necessity be again in Town.
The Dean of Lincoln (Dr Green) who is Master of Benet College, Camb:, offers his service with great civility, if you chuse to have any letter or paper in their Library (wch, you know, abounds) transcribed for you.
