Mr B.		May 2nd 1826

I understand Captain Jobling of Newton Hall has taken offence that you did not call upon him and says he should certainly have attended the dinner had you called upon him … Michael Dodds Esq residing at Cornhills Nr Kirkwhelpington was from home when you passed and I believe you omitted to call at his house to leave your card.  A letter I have no doubt will win him over and I shall request your Brother, as soon as he returns from his canvass at Carlisle to call upon him.
