Mrs Cuthbertson,

I rec’d yr Lettr this morning & shall do what’s in my power to serve you in yr concerns with yr Graceless nephew. I have sent to him severall times to come to Newby and he will not come nigh me. I desired the Postman last night not to fail to Send him to Newby and to tell him in case he wanted a little money I’d let him have it. He told me he was sure nothing else would be an Inducement to bring him. If he had happened to come to Newby when he went to Burrbridge I would not have questioned but to have got all things settled to yr own satisfaction. I hear he has now got Acquaintance at Knaresbrough & other places am afraid some or other will make a Prey of him. I wish his Bro Robinson be intirely his friend if he were he would not suffer him to be at Burrouhbridge all this while and not one penny of money in his pocket. With my service to all yr good family I am yr real friend & faithfull humble servt
