Sir      									Sept   12

      Am much obliged to you for yr kind Enquiry after my Journey, I thank God I had a very good one to Newcastle, but the worst home imaginable,   for the Coach horses in a <manner> Swim Tease, but I order’d the male and other things into a boat and ferry’d over.

      I perceive you have not heard from Mr Thornton they make the same Objection at Newcastle that you think he will but but they offer me what money I please so I would be <positive> to take it in a short time, which you know I cannot do, though I do not in the least question but to have it att the time appointed, tho’ I doubt it will be five & a halfe

      What you name about my Son Christopher & his <pln’d taking> his Mastrs. Goods is a business of consideration, but my Bro. Bridges has discoursed him upon that point, & they have Agreed that two honest able men in that Trade are to set down the <opinion> 20 days before Midsummer day next, however I am mightily obliged to you for yr kind Advice in that Affair, the ways & weather are now very good, & hope will continue So,  & should be [struck out: ‘mighty’] very glad to see you at Newby, all here desire yr Company, & pray believe me      

      yr Obliged Humble Servt

For   The Revd. Mr Pemberton
