Sir        								Febry 24

      I am much oblig’d to you for discoursing Mr Primate and am altogether of the mind that Mr Gould is a much more proper person than Mr Bridges to assist in this Affair, Some months ago I writ to Mr Gould and desir’d his Assistance upon my son Kitts Acct.  I had a very civil Answer from him that he would be always ready to do my son all the Service in his power which I do not in the least question.

      My Brother Bridges Acquainted me that the money would be Ready on Midsummer day but I perceive by yrs thay expect it Sooner, So I will provide & Returne it the first week in June which I Judge will be Soon Enough to Answer his Occasions, pray let me hear from you and Acqt. me how long you design to stay in Town, I hope you’ll be so kind as to take a night’s lodging with me in yr Returne,  I am yr Obliged friend & Servt

For  Mr Tho. Brummell att Mr Cha. Horton’s att 

the Cock & Lyon near Billingsgate,  London
