Dear Nedde

      I rec[eive]d your letter of Condolance with great Satisfaction I read it to my poor wife who is in a great Concerne for her Irrepareable loss god almighty be her Comforter am afraid it will very much shorten her dayes for she gets very little rest at nights If please god she live youl find she be a very good freind to you for the great respect you allwayes showd to her daughter

      Should be very glad to hear that you had got a Ship I think if Mr Aislabie had Exerted his Interest we might have done it long before this Could wish it might prove a fifth rate but I doubt that is not usuall upon the first remove from a Lieutenant & by the first safe hand shall send you my large Gold Strikeing Watch which cost my father forty Eight pounds it will be very propper for you when you get a ship my Wife gives you her kind remembrance with my blessing to you I am 

      Your most affect[ionate] father

I Every post long to hear that you have gott a ship
