My dear Sir
I think I shall not be able to attend the meeting of the Society this evening.
If it is agreeable to the gentlemen present I will be very much pleased to have the next meeting at my place — and pray renew my invitation to the gentlement I mentioned in my former note to drop up here some night if they can make it convenient to have a little star gazing where the night is likely to be clear enough for the purpose. It will be quite a pleasure to have them call — and come yourself also.
Yours very truly
D.J. Howell Esq.
