Content Description

Humphry complains about the uncomfortable shoes that Bishop had hurriedly packed for him. The house where Humphry is staying is full of the most fashionable company, and so he calls for a change of wardrobe. Humphry thinks it best that Bishop does not come to the house himself, unless he can be splendidly dressed; for the valets de chambre there are such beaux that they would pass for brilliant fops in Bond Street. Mr André wants Bishop to call on Mr Upcott to procure for him volumes on the peerage and baronetage.
