From [Mary] Rich

Miss Rich is very unwilling to trouble Mr. Franklin again about the Glass Instrument, well knowing that every moment of his time is employ'd in things of much greater Consequence; but not having been well lately, She is apprehensive She May be sent suddendly to the Bath, and cannot help wishing to recieve from Him some Little Idea of the practice of it before she goes. She has just heard that Miss Davies has been performing at Roupells with great Applause.
