27 January 1793

George Dyer, Carey Street, to Mary Hays, [Gainsford Street], [27 January, 1793].1


     G. Dyer presents affectionate respects to Mary ^& Elizabeth^ Hays, and should be glad to know, whether it will be agreeable to them to drink tea at Dr Priestleys on Friday. There is a coach that comes ^from^ Hackney in the evening, that sets up in Bishopgate Street: and D. will accompany Mary and ^Eliz:^ Hays to Gainsford Street, as he should ^shall^ be happy also to do to J. Priestleys. D. would be glad, if Mary Hays [wd] favour him with a line immediately, as he was ^is^ to [send] a penny post letter to Dr Priestley, when the day is agreed on. D–– if agreeable, will be at Gainsford Street by a little after two. D. found that tea-time would be the more convenient part of the day to Dr Priestley. Presents his affectionate respects to the family.
