Summary:

Anticipating Smith's visit to Hall Place on 6 June. Comments on the dry weather but hopes the woods will be productive for Smith with"all kinds of 'Orchis'". Admonishes Smith for being so "naughty as to talk of flagellation". Postscript by Sir William East requesting Smith to ask Mr Darcy, lecturer at the Royal Institution on electricity, about the new discovery of "gabrenism", including on construction of the necessary apparatus and any worthwhile books on the subject, apparently medicinal in application.
