Dear Sir                     							Febry the 14th   1709/10

      I think I ought not in good manners So Soon to trouble the Duke of Devon. With another Lettr   I desire that Mr Sharpe would be so kind as to go & Remind the Bishop of Ely, who I am well satisfy’d will do me all the service in his power,   I could heartily wish that likewise acquainted with him so that you might accompany him.  I believe his Intrest is very great & I know he’ll exert it upon this Occasion, after the Bishop is Discoursed would gladly know his Answer, if you think convenient shall write to my Lord Hallifax, and I think if you would speak to Sir James Montague when you See him in the House he might perhaps have some Acquaintance at the Board, and I am sure would use his Intrest upon my Acct. my Son must take care to have his Ordrs renewed in case it be without, for he must not neglect to returne to his Ship, in case he cannot get his ordrs Renew’d

      All here give you their humble service, & I am  

      yr most obliged & most Faithful humble servt

Poor Peter Jennings dy’d this day but how he has made his will I know not

Jno Aislabie Esq London
