D[ea]r Aletheia

      I’m very glad to hear under your own hand that you are well Received & humbly Wish you may long continue in good health

      Be sure you give my most humble service & Thanks to my L[or]d of Ely & my Lady Browne, & tell them I shall always own my great obligation to them both upon your Acct. If your uncle Bridges invite you to Ember be sure you go tho’ I would not have you to be too troublesome to him, tell your Bro. Nedd that Mr Aislabie will be in Town within 20 days & then if nothing can be done For him I would have him come into the Country & so Returne in Winter, I doubt not but at last he’ll gett a Commission, but patience must be had, if the Bis[ho]p of Ely would be so kind as to move the Queen in his behalfe, she will grant an Order immediately to the Commissioners of the Admiralty to make him a Capt upon the First voyage, Order him to write me an Answer of the Letter I writ him the 2 June, tell your Bro Kitt I Rec[eive]d his Letter & shall be at Newcastle the Assizes w[hi]ch will be about the beginning of August, & will do him there all the kindness in my power 

      With my Blessing to you all I am your Most Aff[ectiona]te Father
