My Ly My continuing so verry much oute of order, I went over last weeke partly on business, but more particularly to inform myself of the State of her health, and posture of Affaires in Case of Mortality. As to the former according to the Acc't the Gen't gave me she cant continve long, and as to the latter I do not find any will has been made, Since the death of either of her Brs. and how to advise, as the Case now stands, for the best to my Master, putts us both to a stand, so have stated the Matter above and when T have rec'ed their thoughts, shall then go over againe to the Honest Gen't who I dare answere will do all he can, for your Honors Servis. He desires, that not withstanding y'r Lad'p, has had no Answere to your fformer letters, that your Honor would not omitte writeing now some times, for that her temper is such that she loves to beCourted to do the thing her naturall 

Inclinations lead her to of her owne accord. Our Mill Damme is now near finished the Charge whereof when compleated your Honor shall have in particulars. Twould be much for your Lad'ps advantage, if your Honor would be pleased to signify your pleasure with this Town Tennants, both now and old, for till they come to new Agreem'ts none will burn Lime or Manure the Ground in any tollerable manner as itt ought to be. With the tender of myne and Wifes most humble Duty to your Honor, my Lord, and Lady Anne I begg leave to Remaine 

Madam Your Ladyshipps Ever most Obedient, Humble Servant, 

Char: Busby.
