Dear Sir       								Novr 26

      The Bearer is a great object of Charity and <.altho’> less than <distracted>, I perceive he lives at Aldfield and has Wife and Children, so pray Ordr the Town to allow him some small <matter> or give him something to buy him cloathes for you see he has not a Rag to his back, and will certainly be starv’d if no Care is taken of him.

      The Gardener is much to blame that did not write you the name of the Carrier he sent the Trees by, I doubt there will be no <good> come of them, being so often disappointed

                I am in great haste Sir, yr faithfull humble servt.

J Aislabie Esqr. Att Studley These [prsents]
