My Lord

I had the hon[ou]r of yr Lordships letter & would have certainly waited upon yr Lordship yr first coming into the country, but Sending my little Grand daughter into Cheshire being a very hot Season, & an unskillfull coachman Spoil’d all my set of horses, one of them dy’d their & the rest if they do live, I do much question whether Ever they will be Serviceable or not, this is the only reason that I did not do my Self the hon[ou]r - & pray believe me always

	My Lord

	Yr Lordships most Faithfull & most Obedt Humbl Servt

To the Right Honourable Lord Castlecomer
