I perceive by yr Lettr to Mr Wilkinson that the young man that was propos’d to be my Son’s partner is gone into another Shop upon the death of his Relation.  I desire you’ll do me the favour, when another is pitched upon, to make inquiry into his behaviour and Ability, for you know all Depends upon a sober and careful partner,  I have a great Reason to thank you for Recommending so worthy a good Man as Mr Primate for my Son’s mast’r for I perceive by my Son he is more like a Parent to him than a master,    My nigh Neighb’r Mr Aislabie is now with me who gives you his most humble Service and pray believe me 

      Sir yr most oblig’d & most faithful humble servt
