Letter from Joseph Banks to Matthew Flinders (5 of 7) (FLI01) Page 2

he will however if I mistake him not do all
that the means & Precedent of office will Enable
him to do, & with this I am well aƒsured that
you will be Satisfied & gratefull [sic] and your heart
    I mean to be in London on the 7th
of november at night, on the 8th I {Entertain} my
Functions as President of the R.S; which resumes
its meetings on that day. I hope on that day
to have the Pleasure of Shaking you by the
hand & congratulating you on your Present Situation
& Condoling the Evils you have endured & the
years of your youth you have defended of
French Tyranny & oppreƒsion

[Ends here – Banks' signature cut away]
