Honest Mr Whitaker                                             				May 24

      Am obliged for yrs of the 21, and shall not fail to give the Bishop of Chester an invitation to Newby when he comes to Burrbridge, and when you see the Bishop of Ely & his Lady I desire you’ll give my humble service to them both.

      I have occasion for a black stoned horse for the Wheels about 15 hands high, <a leader> about 5 yrs old   I would have him to have a good large Starr and a white foot or two, a strong <male> and a quiet horse, pray inquire at such a horse and tell me his very lowest price and then you shall hear from me further      

      From D[ea]r S[i]r yr assured friend to Serve you

      All this family are much yr humble Servts

Revd. Mr Whitaker at Emanuel College In Cambridge,   via London
