	I recd yr Lettr yesterday from Mr Adams who writes me that my Lady Hewley has lately recd a considerable sum of money & is willing to lend me £1500 at 5 p cent wch is much better than to have part of it at Newcastle wch will both cost me a Journey which you know am unwilling to take, beside a good sum in expenses. I hope there is now an End of that business which has both given yr selfe & me a great deal of trouble, which am obligd to you for.

	I have sent you a barrel of pickled Oysters by the Bearer wch I hope will prove well. I had them from the Isle of Wight & them which I have already tasted proves to Expectation, which I wish yours may do the same. With all service from here to yr selfe & Mrs Trotter with my blessing to my Godson

	I am yr real friend & humble servt

Revd Mr Pemberton Bedale
