      I could not possibly believe that Mr Pemberton should be guilty of so base and unworthy an action as to Endeavour to make an Intrigue with my Daughter, I should never have believed it but that my Daughter was so wise as to give me her Lettr which you may imagine Surprized me very much, can you possibly have the vain thoughts as to think yr Selfe a fit match for my Daughter, if you did you went a very Scandalous way to Work to desire her to let you know how yr lettr might come in safety to her, so I would gladly know what you can say for yr Justification If I should Shew yr Father the lettr I believe he would never own you more, You know I had a respect for you upon yr Fathers Acct formerly, but now by your base Intriguing you have forfeited my friendship, which perhaps might  have been an Advantage to you. 

            I am  E. B.

For  Mr Ralph Pemberton Merct in Newcastle
