From J. Wood 14 February 1826

Feb 14 1826

My dear Sir

It is most highly gratifying to find that the Duke of Rutland remembers his staunch Friends the Johnians. Our progress is extraordinary. Silence was worshipped by the Romans as a Deity. I have no news; nor have I heard anything from others.

Believe me my dear Sir

Most truly Yours

J. Wood
