Dear Nedde,

	At last I rec’d a letter from you I wonder what great business you possibly could have that you did not write to me sooner you wrote me that Mr Aislabie told you that all the Govt that had the Queens Commands for Comissions were provided for and hopes that your turn will be next it is in his own power to get you a Comission when he pleases and I very much wonder that he has not done it before this. let me know by the first post whether he did not tell you he had securd a Ship for you & that you should have a Comission very shortly so upon your lttr will write a line to him my Self for you do but loose time and Spend moneys at London being out of Imployment. I have writ to your brother Kitte this day to pay you £1 7s6d for what you are in Disburse for Buckles &c the letter case you sent me was not such a one as I told you of I would have had a letter case that was made in Turkey with Turkish letter Imbroydered upon it they are Extraordinary dear & very hard to be not withal however tis all one shall make this serve

      Your poor sister Blacket is some what better than she was tho I believe she’l not be a woman of long life

      With all kind remembrances to you from here

      I am your most affect. Father
