Letter from James Campbell June 1800 (2)

This is a letter from James Campbell at the Shakespear Tavern, Covent Garden in London, to his parents in Dalcross.

James is well but is concerned about his parents in these hard times as he has not had a reply to his two previous letters. He has heard that meal costs 3 shillings the peck in Edinburgh and tells his family that everything is plentiful in London, but expensive. James is attending school every day and requests a sample of his brother Sandy's handwriting so that he can see how he is coming on at Cantray school. James' uncle has been very kind, providing pocket money and three suits of clothes
