My Dear John Pybus

I received this morning of yours of the 8th and I will in the first place congratulate with you on the satisfactory (upon the whole) state of your Health - I hope it will still improve - Your visit to London on this occasion will afford you great pleasure & satisfaction - with respect to the main object of your letter received today I have to say that James Henry is labouring under a great mistake as to my having suggested that if you wished it might serve out your clerkship with Mr Eastley’s Agents - My suggestion was this that if you wished it I would take a re-assignment of your Articles for the remainder of the 5 years (being the summer months) - you will recollect what James Henry appears to have forgot that you are serving to be a Notary as well as an Attorney & if you were to go into office of Easterley’s Agents how could you be serving as a Notary - this difficulty cannot be overcome - the term of your clerkship must be served with an Attorney and Notary - in case you feel deficient as to the practice of the Courts you will have to postpone your application for admission from Michaelmas Term to some subsequent Term to give you an opportunity of being in London for a few months after the expiration of your clerkship - but I really don’t think that it will be necessary that you should do so - Tell Margaret that I am exceedingly happy to that her visits to the Aurist has been so beneficial & successful - may the improvement in her hearing be permanent - my last cold has been severe and tenacious but I flatter myself I have got completely rid of it. I am glad to hear Mr Dryden is well - and I hope you have today found Mrs Howey and her daughter in good health & spirits - Mr Tinley’s clerk (Mr Adamson) frequently enquires after you - Mr Wilkinson has left Torquay is now in London & intends being at Harpuby at the end of this month - My housekeeper Miss H. C. Ingledew sends her kind regards - Elizabeth calls on her frequently - they are taking tea with Miss Pybus this evening - Today has been very cold & rainy - Daggett delivered his first Lecture yesterday afternoon - Tell James he must endeavour to rise early in the morning particularly during the Summer months - have you called on your Catterick friend in the Chemist’s shop - Remember me to Mr & Mrs Temple - you will have seen that Dr Gavin is dead - you will recollect he was here during the Cholera Visitation and dined with me at one of my Official Dinners

Yours affectionately

Henry Ingledew
