May it please yr. Grace To Pardon me for giving yr Grace this trouble I perceive that my Worthy Neighbour mr Aislabie did formerly recomend mr. Ridsdale to yr. Grace, as a proper person to keep yr. Courts here; He having been Some time Serviceable to your Grace & to your Tennants, and a perticular Friend of Mr Aislabie but, I suppose Mr Stockdale had then prevail’d for one mr Barroby, tho he declared himself concerned at it afterwards, - because mr Ridsdale & his Son were always his sure Friends in his Election at Knaisbrough, and he was Unacquainted at that time wth mr. Ridsdales desire to Serve yr. Grace. My Lord, Presuming upon your Graces former Favours I beg leave to Recomend mr Ridsdale to keep yor. Lordships Courts here his Son haveing Married a very near Relation of mine, I shall own it as a very great favour done to My Lord Yr. Graces most obedient Servt.
