I take this oppertunity to assure dear Mrs Wentworth I am & always shall be her very Humble servant, Mr Osbaldiston will give you an account of our both divertions where I often have wish’d you. I am consern’d to find Sir William gives me no hopes of seeing you this Winter in London, I am at this time very happy in Mrs Bell Condon’s company, who I find I must Lose so soon, her Mother being resolvd to live on at York, I am sorry there’s so many charms in that country to keep you all there, we have been in great expectation of the Pretender but I believe all there plots are discover’d tho this place is mightily affected towards him, here is not a world of people of quallity but the Town is mighty full. Your Cousin Condon’s dancing is admird beyond all description. I hope Dear Mrs Wentworth has a large share of pleasures in the country for I think one may be perfectly satisfied there --- and you give, content to others that you may ever find it yourself in the desire of

      Your Affectionate Servant
