      My Daughter Blacket I think’s in a very dangerous condition, and this morning I sent for Dr. Johnson, pray Acqt. me by the <Bear[er]> if your Ass be foal’d for my Daughter Blacket has great mind to drink that Milk. Shall desire the loan of her for a little time,

      I am Sr your most obliged humble servt. 

Revd. Mr. Pemberton

Pray inclose me your Lett to Mr. Adams, and shall peruse, Seal and send it by my own Servt who shall give it to his own hand. If you think fit you may desire Mr. Adams to consult Dr. Ware and perhaps betwixt them one of them may, and then the same security will serve them both.
