Kempe, John Tabor (Author)
Jay, John, 1745-1829 (Addressee)
Title
[Document, 1771 December 27]
Abstract
Kempe has delayed answering Jay's letter in order not to catch from the latter's warmth an indelicacy of expression which he might on reflection think blamable. Never addressed like this before and thinks it without provocation. Will give an explanation if desired in proper terms. The occasion did not decree such warmth.
