The second is a letter from Thomas Hope addressed My Dear Sir and dated at the end Duchess Str / April 7th, apologizing for not sending a copy of his pamphlet sooner on grounds of delicacy due to Mr Wyatt being/ engaged not only in the same/ Department, but also in the/ same Cause with Yourself, a delicacy now overcome by the coincidence of Hope's ideas on architecture with those / which render you one of the/ Most splendid exceptions to/ the Style I criticise.
