My dear & honoured Friend

The inclosed2 is from Mr. Marshall, who, you will remember, was Mayor of Norwich at the time of your first visit there. He inclosed it to me, not knowing your adress.
I am much mortified at being still prevented by lameness from calling upon you, but my Surgeon so strongly instits upon the necessity of rest, from which I certainly find that I desire benefit, that I am desirous of giving myself a chance of recovery. Especially do I muse myself of Jessonda. My acquaintance with this delightful Opera is, at present, condined to reading the Piano forte Score, and hearing, at the Philharmonic Concerts some detached pieces from it, for the only time it was performed in England I was on the Continent. You will therefore, judge of the great pleasure I anticipate. At the performance of Faust, last year, Mr. Gye very kindly indulged me with a seat in a box in the lower Tier: perhaps, in consideration of my lameness, he will allow me this privilege again, any night Jessonda is performed.
With best compliments to Madame Spohr. I remain
My dear & honoured Friend
Yours most sincerely
Edw. Taylor

Dr. Spohr
