	I reced yor Letter of the 30th wth much satisfaction, being it brings me the good account, of the benefitt you have reced by the waters, I heartily wish the continueance of it, & that you may be perfectly in Health when you return, I had resolved on a day to sett forward, & Mr Thompson the vicar of Ripon was to goe wth me, but I much doubt whether I shall goe or noe, ab[ou]t 8 days Since I sent my dear little Mitty to my Lord Warrington, the weather being soe excessively Hott, & a very unskillfull Coachman, did drive the Horses so fast that one of the best Horses died their [struck out: ‘at Dunham’], & the rest got Home wth much to doe, but whether they’l live or dye ‘tis uncertain, & most people thinks that in case any of them do recover they will not be fit to travel this many Months, last post I writ to Mr Aislaby, to buy me a sett of Season’d Young Horses, & in case he can light of any such soon, I hope yet to be at the Bathe in August, I doe not question but to have an Answer from him in 8 or 10 days, then you may expect the trouble of a Line, from, 

	Sr  Yor most obliged Humble Servt
