Dear Kitty                                					Janry 1  1709/10

      I Rec’d yrs of the 29th dated from London, I Rec’d a Lettr lately from Mr Gould, who very kindly writ me that upon the least notice from you he would give my Bro Bridges and yr Mastr a meeting at any time and place they would please to Appoint, so when you write and yr Mastr has Agreed upon the time and place you must go yr Selfe to Mr Gould and Acqt him, Am sure he’ll be very willing to meet and do you all the service in his power.

      Am sorry the Collar of Brawn prov’d so bad, I had got then a new Cook and he did not understand how to Roll it which I believe was the onely Reason it prov’d so bad, and besides the carriage is so far to London that tis almost impossible to get it good thither. upon Rect of this Lettr  Know of Mr Smirk how his Collar prov’d I doubt it prov’d no better.  Always when you see my Lady Blacket & yr Uncle Bridges be Sure you give my Service to them, let me know what yr Uncle and she thinks whether yr Coz be married or not, for I learn the Report is in Northumberland that Mrs Ord at this time is lying in of her second girl,  Aqct me whether you hear any thing of the Report or not, with my humble service to Mr Primate & Blessing to you   I am yr Most Affect. Father

Mr Chris Blackett
