Dear Maria                                   						Dec 1 1709

      I perceive by yours that both my Coz. Metcalfe and Mr Smirke are unwilling to take Tablers, Yr Bro Kitt will have a house of his own at midsummer, and there will only be himself and a young man his partner and if it will be convenient I think you may as well table with him

I would have you at Candlemas to come to Newby you may take places in the Stage Coach, and my Coach shall go for you to Topcliffe  As for yr Cloaths you may send them by Chapman the Ripon Carrier a week before you leave the town   Am very sorry to hear of Mr Bowman going of by Reason Mr Brummell and poor Robinson should be loosers by him   Inclosed I send a discharge for Mr Smith which I know will satisfy him, I doubt not but you have gott the Brawn long before this  As soon as it has has been 9 or 10 days In Souse be sure you taste it and lett me know how it proves as also My coz. Wilkinson’s

Mrs Maria Blacket
