I perceive by Mr Wakef[iel]d that Mr Duncome is at his own house, & he did not hear him say any thing of his going to make a Visit into the West Riding, I could wish my Son had an opportunity to see the young lady & the sooner the better, by reason he Recd a lettr lately to go up to London as soon as conveniently he could, yet his ship accts might be passed 

Am informed they go through several offices before the Admiralty pass them, as soon as I have the fav[ou]r of a letter from you, he shall immediately waite on you, could heartily wish he could see both the ladys & the sooner the better, he writ you a line 3 posts ago, wch I hope came to hand all here are much your huml servts pray believe me always

	Your m[os]t faithful f[rien]d & hum[ble] ser[van]t

Mr Lodge
Undated, but between 26 Oct and 4th Nov. 26th used here.
