Dear Sir

      I wrote to you a long letter lately and hope it will arrive safe to your hands. I send to a friend at Liverpool the plans of Mr. Paine which I heartily wish may be of any advantage or pleasure to you. He will send them by the first opportunity. Mr Paul Wentworth is now in London and we know nothing more of his peregrinations. Mr. Sam Wentworth is now here and seems a sedate sensible young man and by his account Studies much at Oxford. He desires his best respects to you.

      Here in Yorkshire all are quiet about Elections as yet either for County or City and I don’t hear that Ld. Rockingham promotes or endeavours to make any alterations as yet. ‘tho it is thought that Sir George Armitage will not stand again for the City – Paul Wentworth has agreed with me not to trouble ourselves about these affairs. Many other Counties are advertising at present & promise much and mean little but for their own advantage. You’ll hear that the Duke of York is dead perhaps before you receive this. We have had a very bad Shooting season and now we are beginning to hunt as usual. I shall be very glad to hear from you at the soonest and how you go on and as for myself, the same as you saw here and as such, if you will remember me, it will give great pleasure to 

      Dear Sir Your much obliged

      And Affectionate

      Thos. Wentworth

Bretton  Octr. 10th 1767
