      I perceive by yours of no date that Mr Aislabie is not in town which I’m sorry for, I know he’ll do his endeavour to have your Ship paid of as soon as possiable can be tho I doubt it will not be as soon as I could willingly wish as for your going to Sea at this time I know it will not be for your advantage so if you be wise have no further thoughts of it for as soon as your accts are past and the phenix paid off I would have you come into the Country, it’s soely in Mr Aislabie power to pay of the ship when he pleases provided your accts be past and I know he’ll be very willing to oblige me in it, am sorry your self, L[i]eu[tenan]t, Mr Lambton and Mr Jackson, should not be in perfect health give my Service to them & tell them should be glad to see them at Newby, all this family gives you their kind Love and Service with my blessing to you I am

	your most affectionate father

besure you fail not to answer my Letters as soon as they come to hand
