      I am very glad to hear the Brawn prov’d well, and am much oblig’d to you, for your kind enquiry after my daughter Blacket, she is very much from being perfectly recovered as you write me, but on the contrary every day weaker & weaker, we all think its impossible she should live long and I am afraid her death, will goe very hard w[i]th my poor wife, god Almighty prepare us all for our latter end I am to you & yours

      Your faithfull humble Serv[an]t

To Mr Jno Wilkinson Merch[an]t in Newcastle
