Neighbour George Wythe fitted him much
better than my last suit did me, for the
sides of the Coat & Wastecoat were let out
before I could wear them, the Breeches were
not altered: The Coat & Wastecoat I am
about to write for I desire may be made
larger in the body then the former Suit &
longer shirted, the Wastecoat more so than
the Coat. My Size & Shape of body resembles
Captain William Fauquer of the Guards.

Be pleased to make me a French-frock
a Wastecoat & 2 pair of Breeches ^ of scarlet
cloth, the Wastecoat to be lined with silk
of the same colour, the Coat to have no lining
& the Pockets to be made of scarlet cloth.
The Button-holes of the Suit of cloths to be
embroidered with gold & handsom double
gild'd Buttons. Send me also 6 pai Mens
coloured lamb Gloves & 6 pair ditto of
white best (strong) ribbed thread Stock
