Dear Sir          								Janry 24

      I hope you Recd my last Lettr I perceive tis in Mr Stockdale’s power to make the Fine very Easy and I believe I need not question what’s in his power to do me Service

      The Inclos’d I desire you’ll peruse, seal and give my son Nedd, and ordr him to wait on the Bishop of Ely and  deliver it, who I know will be very willing to Serve him with his best Intrest, I doubt if my Lord Devonshire should know that I make use of any Intrest but his own he might take it ill however I leave that to yr own Judgement whether you’ll have the Lettr Deliver’d to the Bishop of Ely or not, tho’ in my opinion it can do no harm     I am Sir most Affect’ly yrs

Jno Aislabie Esq    London
