TO WILLIAM BOYS, Esq. F.S.A. OF WALMER.
It is with much pleasure that I seize this opportunity of acknowledging your kind and liberal friendship to me, upon every occasion, especially in the
continued assistance you have afforded me towards
my publication of the History of Kent, from
the earliest period of it. Such assistance, from a
gentleman of your established literary character,
cannot but stamp additional credit on the History,
and contribute both pleasure and satisfaction to the
Readers of it. Please, Sir, to accept my most
greatful thanks for these constant marks of your
favor and regard, and believe me to be, with the
greatest esteem and respect,
Your much obliged
June 24, 1799.
