I did design not to have faild to have mett you at Richmond on Wednesday but poor Mr Blackburne lyed a dying and my wife tells me they design to bury him at Richmond & to borrow my coach for the mourners, so my journey to Richmond is uncertain.

There will be none in the Chariot but my selfe, pray give me service to my <Bro> Yorkle & acqt him the reason why I cannot wait of him so soon as I designed. I am sr yr obliged humble servt

Revd Mr Pemberton
