NEWTON, John (1725-1807). Clergyman and poet.
Autograph Letter Signed to his friend John Ryland, 1 page 4to with address (name only) and endorsements on the reverse, worn in the folds, ['May 10 (1773)']. Apologising for writing a short letter, mentioning a glimpse of Mr Guy and a letter of 'Omicron'.
'... I have just had a peep at Mr. Guy, should have been glad of more of his company. But you know why a peep in such cases must suffice for me.
 I shall be glad if Omicron's letter was acceptable to you. It will perhaps be the last you will
['receive' deleted] see under that signature, for there is a report (which I have no authority to contradict) that Omicron has given up his place in the Gospel Magazine. Doubtless he has his reasons for this, & when he sees you, he will perhaps acquaint you with some of them. ...'
Newton also asks Ryland to give notice of his intention to preach at Collington on the Thursday in Whitsun week.
