[struck out: ‘Dear’] Honest Captain 					2 July 1714

	I reced a Letter from your Secretary by this post, wch I am much obliged to her for & desire a constant correspondence with her because I know you are not very fond of writeing, 

I perceive my Horse is dead, & the rest of my Coach Horses here are little better, if they doe live wch I very much doubt, am sure they’l not be fit for Service this many months, Soe my Journey to the bath God knows is at an End, I am very Glad that my dear Mitty is Soe well pleased at Dunham, pray God continue her Health & that I may live to see her happily disposed on, wch I cannot well expect considering my Illness, however, I am mightily satisfied that I leave her in soe good Hands, All this family gives yorSelf & good Mrs Millinton their kind services, & pray believe me always to be to yorself & Secretary

      real Friend & Humble Sevt

For Captain Milinton at Dunham
