Transcription
Recto: No. 7 Goodge Street Totenham Court Road Sir I take the liberty of addressing you on the present accession as the compiler of the new edition of “The Biographia Britannica.” It has been my amusement for almost thirty years past to make collections for “The judicial Dictionary of Westminster Hall” the lives of many lawyers are not to be found in your work, those that are, are much enlarged from my materials being such as have not generally consulted by Biographers or Historians, my judicial anecdotes of such lives as one points off, may be introduced by way of supplement appendix not additions, I am to inform you that I principally consider the persons as lawyers. I should be happy in an hours conversation with another on the subject, if agreeable at any time of place in a day’s notice. I am Your obd. servt John Rayner Verso: The Rev’d Dr. Kippis No 15 Crown Street Westminster
