Before the dreadful prospect opened,1 I had put a drawing of old Sir John Wynn of Gwedir from a fine original at Wynnstay into an artist's hands.2 when that is finished, proofs will be at yr service. if I visit town next spring I shall not fail waiting on you, being with the truest esteem

Dear Sir

Tho. Pennant

the Revd Mr John Jones
Fellow of Jesus College
