Newcastle 14 June 1856

My dear John Pybus

This being the time of holding the June Circuit , today is the first day I have been in the office since the receipt of your Epistola mirabilis – its contents certainly surprised me not a little ; it however soon occurred to me that a susceptible heart is one of nature’s gifts and that matrimony judiciously contracted is a desirable attainment . Knowing the young lady’s connexions I can have no objection as to her, but the serious question in a negotiation of this nature is "How are you to keep her?"- as suggested by yourself . If your health is likely to be such as to justify your residence in Newcastle , then a treaty for a share of the Partnership Business may reasonably be entered into – but you should not marry until you have been sometime in Business : recollect that your father did not get married until he had been nearly seven years in Business after serving fifteen years as an apprentice . The further consideration & discussion of this matter must be postponed until your return to the North when conferences may be had .

I have not seen Ann I’Anson since her return. When I do see her I will pay her the 5 which she advanced. I have before me your letter of yesterday: you will of course take out a practising certificate. You had forgot that you told me in a previous letter that you would send the Certificate to Mr. Engleheart for enrolment or registration – I have not heard from Mr. Engleheart – You will take care to pay him out of the 50 received of Messrs. Williamson Hill & Williamson & retain the balance. I have been frequently congratulated on your passing and admission as one &c you will let me Know when you intend starting for the North – My respects to all friends & love to James Henry who I am glad to hear is laying a foundation for passing with eclat.

Yours affectionately

Henry Ingledew

P.S. you will see by the newspaper that Mr. Woodman of Morpeth is appointed County Court treasurer in lieu of Mr. Lambert dec. – a good appointment – If you see Mr. Smith again remember me to him & express my gladness at his having passed with so much credit.

Bring down a bag smaller size than those you brought before.
