      My dear John Pybus

      I cannot but admit that the Contents of your letter of Saturday received this morning distressed me not a little - I now write on the spur of the moment perceiving as I do that your great anxiety is to place yourself in a position to make a livelihood for yourself - now I wish you not to make yourself unhappy on that point - I will take care if you survive me , and looking at my age and not withstanding the disease under which you are labouring it is probable you will , that a small provision equal to your wants and desires shall be made for you - Those wants and desires are not extravagent but moderate , for you seem to be aware that Man wants but little here below Nor wants that little long.

      If you shall pass either in Michaelmas or Hilary Term then I shall with pleasure pay your Expenses of another trip to the Mediterranean or such other place as you may be advised to visit for the benefit of your Health - You shall not want what you require either during my life time or after my death in case you survive me - I am glad you keep up your spirits - Continue to do so - Attend strictly to the Doctor’s recommendations and write me as often as you can and if you do so my letters to you will be more frequent - Take care to inform me when your Cash is exhausted and I will send further supplies - I had a hard and stormy week last week - I was at Belford on Monday, Wooler on Tuesday, Berwick on Wednesday, Alnwick on Thursday, Morpeth on Friday & Rothbury on Saturday

but thank God my Cough and Cold have disappeared and I am quite well - Yesterday James Henry went with young Mr. Carrick to dine at New High Town - I remained in the House until afternoon when I went out & got Tea with Daggett & paid a visit to Ann I’Anson & went to St. Nicholas in the evening .

Margaret will meet you in London & probably will go down with you to Torquay for a few weeks or months - She poor girl is exceedingly anxious about you - let me hear from you soon . I am my dear John Pybus

Your affectionate Father

                  Henry Ingledew

 

P.S. There was a great wedding on Saturday at Sandiford - Miss Coulson to a Mr. Arnison , who is to have Mr. Natus’ Brewery .
