Sir Samuel Bentham is travelling all over Europe with a view to drumming up trade in various victuals, which might help him fulfil his contract to the British Navy. He’s now in Latvia to meet ‘The Duke’ (he doesn’t identity him further) to discuss various business matters. In the evening Bentham is collected in an ‘English chaise’ and taken back to the Palace for a concert. The letter is worth reading in full via the Electronic Enlightenment web-site.
