Sr							April 8. 1710

      I am of your opinion as to the Lawyer’s Lettr. and that he is not to be Rely’d on for such a sum, I perceive by his Lettr. that he would willingly <pe[r]use> the Security that I might give him a Fee and then I should be just where I am, for I look upon him to be a whiffling silly fellow,

      When last at Newcastle I was promised this sum so I design to write by the first post and shall acquaint you what Answer I Receive.

      I was mistaken in my last if I writ you that Mr. Thornton had 7 or 800£ of Mrs. Lowther to dispose of, for it should have been Mrs. Potter, and that she would not take under £5.10 p. hundred he writ me in that Lettr. I sent you that he would continue his Endeavour to Serve me till he heard I was supplyd Elsewhere wch. I am Very much obligd to him for, and would much rather had the money procured in Yorkshire than at Newcastle, for it would have savd me the trouble of a Journey wch. I am always unwilling to take, besides a Considerable Expence, however I’m resolv’d to raise the sum tho I take it up of severall people, All this family gives their humble Services to your Selfe & Mrs. Trotter, I thank God my Daughter & little Miss are very much Recover’d tho’ I cannot say my Daughter’s Cough has left her, but much better than formerly it has been, I am Sir 

      your Obliged humble Servt.

Revd. Mr Pemberton

Pray acqt. me by the Bear[e]r whether Ever you writ a line to Mr <Adams> about this business, I remember you writ a Lettr. to him but I inclosd you it back again
