MS: Letter from Robert Burns to Robert McIndoe, dated Mauchline, 5 August 1788

Mauchline 5th Aug 1788

My Dear Sir,
I am vexed for nothing more
that I have not been at Glasgow, than not meet-
ing with you. - I have seldom found my friend
Andrew McCulloch wrong in his ideas of Man-
kind; but respecting your Worship, he was true
as Holy Writ. This is the night of our Fair
and I, as you see, cannot keep well in a line; but
if you will send me by the bearer, John Ronald
Carrier between Glasgow & Mauchline, fifteen
years of black silk, the same kind as that
of which I bought a gown & petticoat from you
