Honest Mr Lodge                 						Janry  27  1709/10 

      Am very much oblig’d to you for the Acct. you give me of my Concerns with Mr Thornton but more particularly for the Concern & value you have for my family, they have both disoblig’d me to the degree, that I am Resolved never to see One of them any more, nor the other for a long time, I may tell you that I design to give neither of them any fortunes, Only so much a year for their life provided they marry with the Consent of their Trustees & not a farthing otherwise so they may learn themselves hereafter for their foolish management.  When I have the Satisfaction of seeing you at Newby shall shew you my Will and what Alterations I have made upon their Acct. wch no true man can blame me for,  All this family gives you their humble service & pray believe me always yr Real & Faithful one

Revd Mr Lodge In Leeds

Should be glad to hear by a line that this Lettr came to hand
