Your last post will always make me esteem ye a civil person, and one whom I shall always have a respect for. I much regret my unfortunate <news>, that I made my application to you no sooner; but since it cannot be now helped I shall thankfully accept of so much as you can pay at this time wch you say will be 4 or 500£; but you will much oblige me to make it up 600 £ seeing Wm Hutch hath so much to pay you: and I know you can with the least worde get it made up at London, weer it 100 times more.

All this trouble I put both my friends and self to, is not for myself but merely to extricate my daughter for that Labarinth of trouble in wch she is involved & I hope that for her sake (whom I heard (tho too late) you once thought well of) you will make this small addition to your bill wch I desire you send by this bearer Tho Chapman Carrier without fail, that I may post it up on Sunday, this short terme being all the time I have to disbatch this affair. I have made this new scribble<ment> to Mr Hutch who will observe it. What yr advance mony cometh to I shall cause Hu: Gill pay you. I am

				Your real friend & servant

					Fra Bowes
