	The inclosed Letter my Sister Headlam desires you will keep till my Brother calls upon you, or you know how to Convey it to him - it contains, she says, Details of what has been done respecting his Writings & other things - & about her own Affairs & removal to Hexham, whither she went yesterday - in all this business she has followed her own Opinion or the Advice of Sawyer Wilson & is as I wrote you before. - for I neither chose nor had time to engage in so disagreeable a Matter - besides I did not approve of her going to Hexham nor of some other Resolutions she has taken - I hear my Brother has been with you since your last Accot. of him and wonder much what a way of life he is fallen into -  PS.
