Dr Nedd

I am very glad to perceive by yr letter of the 11th that you mind yr business so well. You may be assured I’ll make use of all the friends I have for yr advancement. You must have a little patience and I do not in the least question but a Capts Comission will be procured for you. I hope the D of <Devon[shire]> is returned from Newmarket by this time, should make frequent Inquiry when he does come, & then acquaint mr Aislabie and I doubt not but he will immediately go to his Grace & Remind him of his promise. All here gives you their kind remembrance & heartily wishes you success with my blessing to you I am yr most affect. Father

For Lieut Blacket att Mr Smirks &c
undated, but is sequenced between other letters of 16th April
