My dear Henry

I have had such a severe attack of Gout, that I have been able to do very little business lately, and my Fatherís papers are so voluminous and he put his letters in so many different places, that it will take me a long time to verify any thing positively with regard to any particular letter.

I do not remember any such letter as that which you describe among those which I examined on my Fathers table, but I will make a special search when I go to Bowood (probably next month) and if I can find the letter will send it to Dr. Worsley

There are so many confidential letters political and others in the drawers, that I cannot venture to give the Key to any one.

Yr affece Cousin

Would your son come into the Chippenham troop of yeomanry in which my eldest boy is entered. I think it does them good and they learn a little of their neighbours.
