      Lett me know when You are best provided with sugars spices & Fruit, and shall send for as much as will serve me a whole Twelve Month, I have so great an opinion of the Bearer that I promised his Father you should bear his charges to London, my service to Mr Primate & your partner with my Blessing to your selfe

      I am Your most Affect[ionate] father
