Sr 3 Janry 1713/14 I have well considered the discourse you & I had yesterday concerning your Son & my daughter, am positively resolved never to marry any of my daughters without a Settlement suitable to the small Fortune I give them according to the Custom of the Country If I should doe otherwise would be blamed by all my Freinds & relations. its what I know believe you would not doe yor self you are sencible a tradesman ought to have a considerable Stock. soe in my opinion the Match you propounded, will be to neither of their advantadges, soe I wish hope you will have noe more thoughts of it & I desire it may not break any Freindship betwixt us & pray beleive me allways Sr Your most affectionate Kinsman & faithfull humble Servt. To Wm Norton Esqr Sprusta
The daughter in question is Isabella (Bella), who did still marry William Norton Junior.
