Dear Kitty      								8ber 16th, 

      I inclos’d a bill to yr Master the 11 Sept past for what I was indebted to him, and I writ you a Letr the 18 and and order’d you to acqt me, per first post, whether yr Mastr Rec’d it or no but since I heard nothing from you which I take Extraordinary ill So be Sure you fail not to let me hear from you and acqt me here the Report is in Town Concerning my lady Blackett’s marrying Sir Jacob Banks, as also my nephew Blacket being married he positively deny’d it when he was last in the Country notwithstanding some people think that he is married to Mrs Ord, I fancy my Lady Blacket must know whether he be married or not.  All here gives you their kind Remembrance with my Blessing to you I am your most Affect. Father

      Pray give my humble Service to Mr Primate

Mr Chr. Blacket Per J Aislabie
