Dear Nephew

      I have the favour of yours on the 5th would advise you by no means to appear in the house I cant beleive the house will be calld over till after Christmas & then you may get any friend of yours to acq[ain]t the house that you are in towne & not well which Ime sure will be satisfaction to the house [struck out: ‘perhaps the house may not be calld over till sometime after Candlemas’] & will save you a Northern Journey for if any should move into the house when you are there your Election will certain<ly> be made void

      [struck out: ‘My wife Joyns in’] all this family gives their humble services to your self & my neices & pray beleive me allwayes
