Dear Kitty      								Novr.  27 1709

      I Rec’d yr Lettr of the 24 but it is so ill writ and so small a hand that I cannot read it, I think you write that it would be proper that Some friend should discourse Mr Primate about the taking of his house <shop> and Warehouse, I do not understand these things my Selfe, so the first time you see my Bro. Bridges give my most humble Service to him and Acqt. him that I desire he’ll be assisting to you in the taking of the house, and in what other things  Mr Primate may Expect you will take of him.   

      I hope my Bro. Bridges will be so kind as to undertake the trouble, and <and> you may be assur’d you’ll have no <hard> things put upon you, All here give you their kind Remembrances, with my Blessing to you I am 

      yr most Affect. Father

Mr Chr. Blackett per J Aislabie             

When you see Mr Gould give my humble service to him
