Lett me know when you deliver’d the Lettr & whether Mr Aislabie went with you or not, I doubt he’s not acqt’d with the Bishop,  I could heartily wish he were, fail not constantly to give me an Acct how your business goes forward, I hope my Lettr to the Duke of Devonshire & Bishop of Ely will do yr business with my good friend Mr Aislabie’s management,  If I thought there was occasion I would write a Lettr to my Ld Wharton as also to my Ld Hallifax, I hope yr business may be Effected without any troubling them, and besides if my Lord Devonshire should know that any other Intrest is made but to himselfe he might take it ill, So heartily wishing you success with my Blessing to you I am yr most Affect.
