Dr Fawcett desires his Compliments and is obliged to You for the Venison which came just according to their wishes. A Little for our Christening dinner will be acceptable & as soon as I can fix the day I will acquaint You. I think it can hardly be in this Mayoralty but I hope early in the next and while you are in Town to avoid giving You a Journey on purpose. Your intention of being at the Baptism is an Additional instance of goodness for which I return my humble Thanks. Mr John Cookson will not be at home till the latter End of next Week and then I will endeavour to see him and fix about his Venison. I wrote to Mr Maughan to send the two Sheep to Wallington at different times – about ten days asunder.
