Letter from John Campbell, Lord Stonefield, to His Grace the Duke of Argyll concerning the military service of his son Colin

Edinburgh
My Lord
I have the honour of your Graces of the 27th Ult and blame myself exceedingly for expressing my meaning in terms that conveyed a sense greatly beyond what I intended. At Lady Graces Request I applied to your Grace for a Commission to my Son Colin in a Regiment at home, and was quite satisfied, as I always am with your Graces return; in my last I mentioned the impropriety of confining him to a Regiment at home, and wrote that I wished he had a Commission anywhere in opposition to it; not that I was impatient to have the Commission or that I intended to press your Grace to it: I have reason to be thankfull [sic] I have no occasion; your Grace Sometimes are so good as to anticipate my wishes and you are always more condescending to me than I have reason to expect: The young man is indeed very impatient to get into the Service, that is natural to young people, and not to be minded
I am extremely sorry that my letter should have conveyed any such Idea and I hope your Grace will have the Goodness to excuse this mistake. I have the Honour to be with the Greatest Respect and Highest Esteem

My Lord

Your Graces much oblidged [sic] and most Faithfull Humble Servant

Letter from John Campbell, Lord Stonefield, to His Grace the Duke of Argyll concerning the military service of his son Colin

My Lord

Fridays post brought your Graces of the 15th. I must have expressed myself very improperly in my former Letters, to have given your Grace so much trouble in writing about this Commission to my son Colin. Accept of my most thankfull [sic] acknowledgements for your Great Goodness to me in this matter. Nothing would have made me prefer a Regiment at home for him to one abroad but his mothers great aversion to his serving in America as this prejudice seems to be apparently so much to his hurt I have long ago got over it; and I hope Lady Grace will soon do so too.
With Greatest Respect and Highest Esteem I have the Honour to be
My Lord
Your Graces much oblidged [sic] and Most Faithfull Humble Servant
