This is the last part of a copied letter the first part of which was evidently on the last of 5-6 pages which have been cut from the volume prior to this page. Judging from the dates on the previous page that remains, and this, the missing material dates between 7th August and 9th September. The recipient and date of this letter is not known, but from context is likely to have been William Corbett. It has ben assigned the same date as the letter which follows it in the volume.
