Madam 							Xbr. the 22d 1722 

The inclosed I thought convinient to send y'r Ho'r. that your Lad'p might the better give an answere in Case Mr. Garlington should write to y'r Honor. He is now returned into these parts, and as I am told does not valve the reflections y't are cast upon him by all people, so not likely to alter his Course of life, continvally shuffieing f'm place ta place, and never abideing where he should be. As to L y M y's affaires there is little more don in y'm y'n w't I wrotte y'r Ho'r in my last ; save y't wee have had Serjiant Cuthberts Opinion w'h is verry darke on her Lad'ps side, if all be Law he sayes, w'h I much qvestion so hopes she will take the Opinions of others that are more immediately concerned in these Matters. As to ffranke Simpson I have lately had a letter f'm the Coaler and 2 f'm his Attorney all to no purpose, the ludgm't he is layed up for is but 38, on paym't whereof he may be discharged but will afterwards be lyable to the subsequent charges so that if he be not entirely cleared, the payeing of the ludgment will be lost money's, as your Ho'r designs he should be att liberty ; upon the whole I shall differ doeing any thing further till I hear againe f'm your Lad'p w'n I shall obey y'r Ho'rs Commands. My Lords Birthday wee observed w'th prayer in the Morning, and did not omitte drinkeing his Lod'ps, y'r Hon'rs, Lady Anne and ffamileys good healths in the afternoon. My Wife beggs leave to ioyn in. humble duty to your Ho'r my Lord, and Lady Anne ; being eqvally w'th my selfe. 

Madam | Your Honors Ever Most | Obedient Humble Servant 

Char: Busby. 

For The Right Honorable the Countess of Darwentwater att her House in Bruxells Brabant
