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.
Will you ask the V.P. of the Society & Mr. Miller at whose house we were at the other night, and any one else you may think would be useful to come to my house some night soon — as soon as you please, when the night is likely to be good for star gazing — and to come himself of course — for the purpose of trying and testing my telescope.
And be good enough if the gentlemen are able to come to let me by 4 PM of the day + hour they will come, and I shall be very glad to see you all.

Dear Sir:- In response to your request
