Dr Kitty

      the above is a copy of my last, I hope you have hired me a good gardiner before this, but if you cannot get one for eight pound, I would not stick to give something more, provided you are satisfied he understands his business well, & is a sober fellow, if you can meet wth such a one would give him ten pound, but you must endeavour to hire him for as much less as you can, besure faile not to let me know be the very first post, whether you have, or is likely to hire me a gardiner, if not must get one in the countrey, advise me likewise what you have done concerning C Hortons affair, it is a Kitchen Gardiner tht I want, & Ten pound a Year is great wages
