Faraday to Thomas Winkworth   November - December 18241

R Institution | Thursday Mor

Dear Sir

In consequence of a former introduction & slight acquaintance with you which I regret our excessive occupations will not permit us to cultivate more than I at least do I am tempted to apply to you in favour of a friend of mine Mr. Chater2 who intends proposing as Collector to the Soc Arts3[.] He is a very worthy & proper man and I am very anxious for his success if you are indifferent to any one & can favour me with your vote & good will for him it will confer a great obligation[.]

I trust you will excuse the liberty I take[.]

I am dear Sir | Your obliged & faithful | M. Faraday

Mr Winkworth | &c &c
