Dear Sr Am very much oblidged to you for yor kind inquiry after our healths, I was very much out of order, sometime before I came to York, but I thank god am much better & has got an in indifferent good Stomach wch I wanted for many months before. Sr Jno Delavall wrote lately a letter to Mr Ridsdale, that he would put in his answer, but had noe thought of purchaseing it, being he said their was more debt upon it than the Land was worth. You did mighty well in not concerning your self in Mr. Nortons affair for can any one imagine I shall give a fortune with a Child and not have a Settlement. I did write him very fully that I would have noe manner of thought of it, I desired it might break noe freindship betwixt us. When I hear any thing more from Sr Jno Delavall, you shall certainly be acquainted with it – being I know you are one of my best freinds. with all services from hence & blessing to my Godson I am pr <E> yr most oblidged <humb> Servt. I could not persuade Yor Curate to eat a dish of meat with me.
