Mr Benthem

Wyvill upon this acct. that really I am ashamed to recommend any more not but the person may be very capable of his business, though I find in the certificate Signed by Mr. Dale there is part of it cut out wch. will certainly do him a discredt. at the <Court> < I am> so I return the certificate by the bearer
Presumably the Revd Leonard Bentham of Acomb
