Dear Maria       							Sept 12

      I thank God I got very well home on Saturday night, never knew the way so bad att this time of the Year, and the horses in a manner swim over Tees, but my Selfe, <male> & other things  went over in the boat.

      Give my most humble service to Dr. Davison and his lady, and tell him that am Resolved to follow his Advice, for I find that drinking much Small beer in a morning has done me a prejudice which I am Resolved to give over, and this morning began to drink Bohea Tea which I hope will Agree well with me, with my Blessing to you  

      I am yr most Affect. Father

For Mrs Henr[iett]a. Maria Blacket att Dr Davisons house in Durham
