I Rec[eive]d yours of the 27 have been att Richmond 3 or 4 days otherwise you should have heard from me before this; Tis the same thing whether Mr Curtis be Enrolld now or when I come to Newcastle, You have considered the best Way for his coming, For twill be much the cheapest Way to come by the Ripon Carrier, so pray do you Agree with him both for his horse & Victualls for him, As also what Cloaths he has to bring & I shall pay the Carrier att Ripon, I desire you’ll lett me know whether my Nephew Mitford went into the East Ind[ies] or not, for he was so ungratefull as never to give me a line of Thanks for the £10 I gave him, Acq[uain]t me likewise if my Nephew Blacket will be at Newcastle this summer, I doubt not because my Lady is there. I am you assured friend to serve you

[for] Mr Tho Brummell
