Resumé

Hobhouse sender tre breve til videre fordeling. Han anmoder Strutt om at bede Thorvaldsen sende busten af Lord Byron direkte til ham. Desuden anbefaler han Strutt at rejse til lands fra Napoli til Otranto på vej til Grækenland og udvise forsigtighed over for Ali Pashas krig. Han vedlægger et brev til Ugo Foscolo.

Dear Sir –

I take the liberty of transmitting to you three letters. – I know not that they will be of any use to you – but you may try them – If you see Mr. Thorswalden pray tell him to send my bust of Lord Byron directly to me by the usual means – You will confer a favour on me if you will let me hear from you on this subject from Rome –
Let me advice you to travel from Naples by land to Otranto in your way to Greece. The good folks will endeavor to detour you – but go by all means – As to Greece you must be regulated by accidents[?]– ‘Ali Pacha ’s war is rather against you’ –
I have enclosed a letter to Foscolo which you may find an opportunity of leaving with a card –
With every wish for your health & good fortune during your journey believe me

Your faithfully
John-C. Hobhouse
