you know you may command me in any thing, but in breaking my word you must excuse me. I wish you had made y[ou]r mind know to me upon mr Worsleys Acc[oun]t when you were at London & then would willingly have Served him; but being Ingaged some time ago by my Neighbour S[i]r Brian Stapleton & his Son, as also by Mr Wakefield from my L[or]d Downes, I can neither in honour or Conscience break my repeted promises, w[hi]ch I know you will easily pardon, Mr Dawney Came heither yesterday and told me he did not in the least question the Election by a great majority it much concernes me that I cannot Serve my best friend Mr Aislabie who I hope will believe that I am 

      intirely & most affectionately y[ou]rs

      To John Aislabie Esq[uire]
