I can not be certain of my immediately comeing down, wherefore that there may be no obstacle towards our intentions, or hindrance of the performance of our agreement, the surest way will be to send up the deeds to your son, & they shall be executed, & returned according to your direction, & desire; but must intreat you to make it <9000> for a peculiar reason I att present have; tho I am not so happy as to be married to the Duke of Ss Daughter; I mention this only because you might think that matrimony might occasion an additional expence in Sr

	Yours Sincerely	Wm Blackett
