William Hone to Joseph Planter, Esq., 9 May, 1820.1-TEI-

45 Ludgate hill
9 May 1820

Notwithstanding the interview I had with you when I put into your hands Mr Godwin's note of introduction,2 stating my wish to be admitted to the library of the British Museum in the manner usual to persons, who, like myself, pursue literary inquiry, it occurs to me that it may be proper to reduce my desire to writing, and you will oblige me by considering this note as a respectful application which you have kindly assured me you will lay before the Trustees of the Museum at their meeting on Saturday next.

I have the honor to be,
Your most obedient,
and most humble Servant,
W Hone

Joseph Planter, Esq.

British Library, Add. MS 40120, ff. 138-39. [return]
See the letter from Godwin to Planter, 13 February, 1818. It is unclear why the present letter should be dated over two years after the original Godwin letter. [return]
