Dear Sir,

      Not having had the pleasure of finding you at home the other morning when I called upon Mrs. Wentworth, I can not deffer [sic] any longer to return you personally my most sincere thanks for your kindness and friendship in allowing my son John to go with you to Nova Scotia – I owe this to your friendship to William, and I hope John will make himself worthy of it by his behaviour and by paying the strictest attention to you. –

      The obligation I think myself under I can not express. I was much perplexed how to dispose of him in a way satisfactory to myself, and to his advantage which you have entirely removed

      I am with the truest regard Your obliged and Sincere Humble Servt.

      R. Bentincks

<Parry> Garden Jany. 13th 1791
