Dr Neddy

      I perceive by yours this morning that you did not call at either of the Island, as for your duddled [double] distell’d Rum & Snake Rout, you may give a small quantity of it to your brother Christ[opher] to send me into the Countrey by the first Ship, directing it for Mr Jack Scott Crane Master at York, as for the black gelding you may have him, he got lame at grass this Summer in his Shouldr so the farrier says drawing him in the draught will make him sound againe,but it will take sometime

      Acqt me when you think Mr Lampton & Jackson will come into Yorkshire, all this family give you their kind love & Service, wth my blessing to you I am

I hope you have seen Mr Aislabie long before this, let me know what discourse you had,
