Capt Millington

I writ to my Dr Mitty on the 6 and you the 10 which I hope came both safe to hand, your boxes shall be at Leeds without faile on Wednesday the 1st Sept, so you may give the Carrier orders to call for them, pray give my humble Service to my Ld & acq[uain]t him as soon as my Lawyer comes from the Spaws [ie. spas] will get a Deed drawn & enclose it for his Ldships perusal, I believe this sudden change of affairs will oblige my Ld to go to London sooner than he Expected, you know what I dream often times comes true, my late dream was that my Ld was made Ld Lieutent & that he made you mustermaster so I wish you Joy of your New employment with my most Humble service to all the good family & my blessing to my D[ea]r little Mitty, I am your assured friend
