From Sir J. F. W. Herschel

Dear Henslow

Here we are again stopped for horses at the same place where we came to a still stand last night There seems to be a pretty considerable negligence on the part of the Landlord of the Bull Royston respecting a supply of cattle and I think it right to give you notice of it as it is not improbable votes maybe delayed tomorrow till too late unless you give this man a pretty sharp fillip.

Yours truly

J. F. W. Herschel

PS. He says that his horses have been engaged by the Committee to work down the road but not up. Is this correct - it will surely cause much inconvenience unless equal facilities are given to ingress & egress.
