I hope to pick up more anecdotes about Enmore. but let me request you to be expeditious in
befriending me with a copy of the plate &c. As some excuse to my friends for the trouble I give, let them consider me as
a public man working for their amusement. I must have the actual survey of sussex; at
lest as much as has appeared. That it is published is certain
ly for I have seen it nailed on the walls of a public
house. I doubt not but Mr Burel could get it for me: or lend it
or anything. other wants I wish to have supplied from him: such as an acct. of the foundation of
the great Church on Winchelsey; & its fine monuments:
& a copy of the inscription on the handmaid of of [sic] Beatrix a natural
Dr of Portugal in the Ch. at Arundel.
These are services I clame [sic] from you for perhaps Mr Burel
will no more let a Letter of mine enter his house than he wd the writer.
Moses is hard at work for you.
