The satirist and author of ''Gulliver's Travels'' writes insistently, in part: ''Your Grace must please to remember that I carryed you to see a Comedy of Terence acted by the Scholars of Doctor Sheridan with which performance you were very well pleased. The Doctor is the most learned person I know in this Kingdom, and the best school-master here in the memory of Man, having an excellent taste in all parts of Literature. I prevayled on my Lord Carteret to make him one of his Chaplains, and to bestow him a good Living, which the Doctor afterwards exchanged for another about seven miles from Dublin. But his Health [illegible] by the Air of this Town, and being invited by the Gentlemen of of the County of Cava to accept the Free School of Cavan, which is endowed equall to his living...This affair hath been so long managing, that it was in agitation before you left us and I begged your consent for the change, which, as a very reasonable Request, not crossing any measure of your Grace, you were pleased to grant. All things have been long agreed, the BP of Kilmore (Hoyt) hath writ to you upon it, so your Lords justices have done, for some months past but being a thing of no great Consequence to the publick State of the Kingdom, that will impower the Doctor and Knowles the schoolmaster to exchange stations. My letter is the worst part of the matter, because it will cost you three minutes to read, but the request is short and reasonable. I writ some days ago to My Lady E. Germain on the same purpose but it is possible Her Ladyship might forget, which Your Grace to my knowledge is not capable of...Jonath Swift''. 2pp. on card-style stationery measures 7'' x 9''. Foxing, toning and pinholes to verso at fold intersections, else near fine.
