To my Honoured friend M. George Gherard,
over against Salisbury house.

I do not make account that I am come to
London, when I get within the wall: that
which makes it London is the meeting of
friends. I cannot therefore otherwise bid
my self welcome to London, then by seeking
of you, which both Sir H. Goodere and I do,
with so much diligence, as that this mes-
senger comes two dayes before to intreat
you from us both, to reserve your self upon
Saterday: so that I may, at our coming to
London that night, understand at my house
where I may send you word of our supping
place that night, and have the honour of
your company. So you lay more obligati-
ons upon
Your poor unprofitable servant
J. Donne.
