To Mr Thomas Brown at Nent=Head.

Dear Sir

	I acknowledge the Recept of Your’s of the 12th, together wth the two Books, and Should, according to Your Request, have Sent you Some more of mine, but not knowing how this may come to hand, much less Books, I defer Sending any ‘till after ye Holidaies, when People are coming to Work. – I take very kindly your Interposition with your Cousin in my favour, and am not a little rejoic’d to find She does not take my late Want of Circumspection in her Company amiss. – As to her Objection, that I’m going to marry, I can assure you there is nothing of it. – So She needs give no Credit to a Report whose cheif foundation was laid by the Hopes of the Girls Parents and the Fears of mine; of the Truth of wch I shall endeavour to convince her, by erelong paying her another Visit, which, She may be Sure, I would neither give her nor myself the Trouble of, was I engag’d elsewhere. – But as the Weather is So extremely wet, and, as I believe we shall make very few Holydaies (our Bus’ness being pretty urgent) I think I shall not get in to Aldstonmore till the Days are a little longer, when it may be hop’d the Weather will be better --- So I have nothing more to add But that  

      I am Dear Sir Your’s in Sincerity

      Jas Mulcaster
