      I desire you will on rect. hereof make a Search in the proper office at Durham for a Coppy of the Will of Francis Earl of Derwtr. & if it is found upon your Search that you’ll order a Coppy of it to be made properly attested to be produced as Evidence.  If you doe not find it in the office at Durham pray Write to York for it as I apprehend it might be prov’d there, for I think as he dyed possessed of Effects in Severall Countys it would probably be so.  If you know of any more likely place to find it in please to order it to be directed to me at this place near Durham to save time. What ever Expence or trouble you have in this affair I will take Care to discharge and am Sir

      Yours etc.
