My Dr. Neighbour                        					May 29 1709

      Yr long absence from Studley has occasioned as great a murmuring among the Neighbourhood as the great Scarcity of Provisions has done in France; but I must tell you none has suffered more by your Absence than this family. I hope you’ll finish your business in a little time, that we may have yr good company in the Country; 

      mySelfe and family are infinitely obliged to you for the great care you take for my son Nedd’s preferrment  am sure twill never be in my power to make a suitable Returne, However I hope you’ll accept the good Will for the Deed, and believe me always 

      D[ea]r fr[iend] yr most obliged and most Faithfull Humble Servt

      All this family are much yr Humble Servts.

John Aislabie Esq A membr of Parliam[en]t To be left at his Chambers In Grays Inn
