Yesterday myself and Mr Sheldrake went to the Exchequer Office and there we gave the Bond you sent up to the Hands of your Atturney Mr <Natts> with this order, to shew it to the Atturney of the other side that he might take notice that the Bond was brought into Court according to former order. Soe that now they can take noe advantage against you, you having fully performed the same if your Adversary doe at any time (which Mr Natts beleeves he will not) move any new matter the Bond being delivered into Court he will be sure to give as timely notice to prevent any effect upon the Motion. Some Letters say that De Ruitter is Dead of his wounds but no other Forraign newes wee have; this is all at present from

      Sr Yo. Very humble servant

      Jo Rushworth

25th May 1676

[on cover:] to the Hon.ble Sr William Blackett Bart at his house in Newcastle
