My dear Sir
Your kind letter is one of many encouraging proofs that the scheme I have long had at heart is laying hold upon thinking men. I am especially glad to hear its treatment in my two articles has given you pleasure, as I feel that I have thus unconsciously made some little return for the enjoyment and instruction I have received from several of things hearing you name. []
The matter is not, I am glad to say, standing still. We have a Committee for the promotion of the subject, & which the enclosed refers, and which is daily increasing in members. I am sure I may rely upon your giving any aid you can, as opportunity may serve, to the advancement of the cause by pen or in conversation. we shall shortly issue a sort of summery of the subject, as a manifesto of our Society (which is totally apart from politices). If you will give us your name as a supporter of the principle of my proposals, we shall be [] 3 glad to include it with those of many other eminent and influential adherents already gained[?] to the cause.
Blelieve me, | with cordial thanks for your sympathetic letter, | very truly yours | W[illia]m L. Blackley [signature]
