I been recently warmly solicited to commence the publication of the star in opposition with the promise of nearly universal patronage: but my private circumstances has hitherto prevented its appearance will possibly doo [do] so untill [until] spring:

I am dear sir with sentiments of esteem yours &c [and et cetera]
