London, December 20, O. S. 1748.
DEAR BOY,
I

RECEIVED last Saturday, by three mails wlrich

came in at once, two letters from Mr. Harte, and yours of the 8th, N. S.

It was I who mistook your meaning with regard to your German letters, and not you who expressed it ill. I thought it was the writing of the German character that took up so much of your time, and therefore s advised you, by the frequent writing of that character, to make it easy and familiar to you. But since it is only the propriety and purity of the German language which make your writing it so tedious and laborious, I will tell you, I shall not be nice upon that article, and did not expect you should yet be master of all the idioms, delicacies, and pe. culiarities of that difficult language. That can only come by use, especially frequent speaking; there. fore, when you shall be at Berlin, and afterwards at Turin, where you will meet many Germans, pray VOL. II.
