J Barker to John Longsdon (jnr), 12 August 1811
A lively letter in which the male author (in a battalion based in Northampton) regales his friend with detailed descriptions of his clothing, Commander Erskine, and tales of incidents with young women at balls: they are able to talk to the young ladies because they by behaving well in church and creating a good impression with the more senior women. He asks John to remember him to two women and others, and ends with an account of getting up at 6am and the wet weather.
