I received your Letter about Mr Clarke’s desiring to put his Horse into the ground behind the Abbey Garden, but hope he will excuse my not giving leave for it; because in similar Applications for the Nuns field in this Town I always think it right to wait for Sir Walters Order. I desire my Comp[limen]ts to him. P.S. Mr Wray may now come as soon as he pleases; & I shall be glad to see him to settle his Acco[un]t with him. I am etc    HR
