"... Messrs Rivington have been applied to (without any authority whatever from me, or any communication whatever with me) to print & publish the Sermon on Lord Clare's death. You will have the goodness to interfere in such manner as you think best, to prevent this publication as an infringement of literary property ... You will receive in a few days a part of the 3d. edition of the Sermon (35 copies) joined in the same parcel with 150 copies of a Sermon of the Bishop of Killaloe - also 150 copies of a work on chemistry by Doct[o]r [Richard] Stack ... You will be pleased to price it according to your discretion, & to give it as much publicity by advertising, as may be requisite ... I w[oul]d thank you also for a line to say how the Discourses on Atonement & also the Sermon on Lord Clare go off. Here the sale of the latter has been unusually rapid, and as the 3d. edition is nearly out, I w[oul]d permit a fourth if I found the sale at all alive with you. The edition I now send over differs in some additional matter (in the notes) from the first. I will thank you to send a copy of the 3d. edition inscribed "from the author" to the Right Honourable John Foster ...".
