" TO SIR JOSHUA REYNOLDS.

“ London, 7th June, 1785. « MY DEAR SIR, - The debts which I contracted in my

father's lifetime will not be cleared off by me for some
years.

I therefore think it unconscientious to indulge
myself in any expensive article of elegant luxury.
But in the mean time, you may die, or I may die;
and I should regret very much that there should not
be at Auchinleck my portrait painted by Sir Joshua
Reynolds, with whom I have the felicity of living in

social intercourse.
“I have a proposal to make to you. I am for certain

to be called to the English bar next February. Will
you now do my picture, and the price shall be paid out
of the first fees which I receive as a barrister in West-
minster Hall. Or if that fund should fail, it shall be
paid at any rate in five years hence, by myself or my

representatives.
“ If you are pleased to approve of this proposal, your

signifying your concurrence underneath, upon two
duplicates, one of which shall be kept by each of us,
will be a sufficient voucher of the obligation.

I ever
am, with very sincere regard, my dear Sir, your faith-
ful and affectionate humble servant,

“JAMES BOSWELL."

I agree to the above conditions.

“J. REYNOLDS."

London, 10th Sept. 1785.”
