Dear Maria        							7ber 29

      I Recd. yr Lettr. and certainly you were in very great haste when you writ it, for tis mighty ill Spell’d, you should buy a little English Dictionary which you may keep at any time in yr pocket, & when you are not sure of Spelling a Word right tis but looking in it, twill not be above 18d or 2 shilling at most, and you cannot have a more useful Book, give my service to Mr Brummell & tell him he may take his own time for the Case of Glass, for am in no haste for it when you see Mr & Mrs Rudstone give my thanks to them for the glass bell, with my Blessing to you both,  

      I am yr most Affect. Father

Miss Henrietta Maria Blacket
