I doubt my d[ea]r little Mitty has forgot her Grand Papa, for I have not had one line from you this long time, all the News I can write you is that your Uncle the Capt is come to London, & as soon as his Ship is paid off will come to Newby, for some time, I do not design he shall go to Sea any more so I hope he will have time to go & pay you & my Lord a Visit, then Cousin Mr Booth did me the favr to dine with me, & will see you at Dunham in a very short time, all here gives you their kind remembrance, wth my blessing to you I am

      Your m[os]t affe[ctiona]te G[ran]d Papa
Diana (1704 – 1737) daughter of William (1681-1713), EB1’s son and his wife Diana Delaval (1686-1711).
