Letter to John Bowring, May 5, 1822

J. Bowring Esq. Lincoln Fields Hackney My dear Sir, I am extremely obliged to you for the tickets for the African Institution –Though it will be impossible for me to be able to go to Newgate on that day yet I don’t wish that Mrs. Fry should make any alteration in her arrangements on my account as I shall make some friends of mine very happy by giving them my tickets. My sisters join me in compliments to Mrs. Bowring. Believe me dear Sir your sincerely obliged, Maria Edgeworth 8 Holles Street Sunday Night
