My Lord

      I had the honour of yor Lordships letter of the first of this Instant, as for any Articles made between my dear wife & self upon our marraige – was only to give her liberty to dispose of all her Jewels, plate & Linnen to whom she pleased, but if your Lordship think that be not sufficient shall <signe> what other instrument you think fitt, that yor Lordship may deliver them to my dear Grand Daughter upon her marraige – for your Lordship may be assured that She shall be abridged of nothing that was her Dear Grandmothers but rather increased by me.

      I am much oblidged to your Lordship for the notice you take of my concern with Sr Jno Delavall.  have already fyl’d my Bill in Chancery against him, for upon my sending a servant to acquaint him of my dear wifes death he imediately sent for all the Tennants to turn to him (tho most of them did not) knowing I have much more upon the estate than it is worth, however the Suite will be chargeable & <I> can have noe remedy to reimburse me but the Estate, which is already indebted to me, much more than it is worth, All this Family are very much yor Lordships humble Servants & pray beleive me allways

             Yor Lordships

		Most obedient & most faithfull humble Servt

For the Right Honble. The Earle of Warrington

In the Hay Market London
