Dear Maria           								Janry 14

      Am very well Satisfied with the Accts you give me of Mr & Mrs How, you do not write me the Street where they live, I perceive you spoke to Mr Speight to take you places, so I heartily wish you both a good Journey, you had much better desire yr Sister & Bro. Wise to meet you at Helperby at <Dui..> than to putt them to the trouble & charge of going to Yorke, and besides if you knew how uneasy tis to yr Sister to travel, you would never desire it, Mewburne will give you moneys for yr Coach hire & Charges, So take no more than you must needs, for money is not so very plentiful, I shall not meet you on the Road because I would have <now> know <here> when you go, be Sure you write to yr sister Wise that she must by no means go to Yorke, if she do I believe it will be very ill taken here, So she had much better meet you at Helperby, When you return from Lamesley let me hear from you  With my Blessing to you both  I am yr Most Affect Father

      If you Receive my Lettr at Lamesley Be sure you give my humble service to my Nephew & Niece Clavering

Mrs Maria Blackett / Newcastle
