Sir                         							8ber 15

      I thank you for th trouble you were so kind as to give my Selfe about my Glass, and I doubt not but next Week to receive it without any Damage, Am very well Satisfyed with Mr Smith’s letter and have order’d him to come to Newby in his Return to London, and in case he use me well Shall bespeak an Organ of him, and if we agree, to prevent mistakes, will have it under hand & Seal, As for what Mr Robinson disbursed for Repairs of the houses in case it was disbursed during the Leaze I made to my Brother, I am not at all obliged to Allow it, for by the Leaze he was obliged to bear all manner of Disbursements and Repairs whatever during his Lease, So I desire you’ll peruse Mr Robinson’s book & lett all things Streight betwixt us.

      Am mighty glad to hear you are likely to make an End to yr Own Satisfaction with Mr Montague, which formerly I us’d to make a doubt of, being Mr Wortley has not one of the best Characters in the World.

      I am yr obliged friend & Servt

Mr Tho. Brummell
