I had a mighty ill journey home and never knew the ways so bad in the beginning of September in my time, nor I believe no Man else, but I thank God I gott home very well on Saturday night but had almost spoiled all my horses in Driving so fast in bad ways,  Mr <Worsley/Wortley> din’d at Burrbridge on Tuesday  so that I know he would be at Newcastle on Thursday.  I heartily wish Mr Brummell may make a good end with him, and that he may be more in his favr. than Mr Ord - am sure he understands the business much better, And should be glad to hear that he had the Sole Management of all the Collieries where Mr Montague is Concerne’d, Inclosed you have a Rect. to make <Quenners> Eat like <Manye> , when you Receive any Lettrs from me I always expect an answer of,  With my Blessing to you both I am
