Honest Will,

This day the bearer John Glendenings daughter was with me, who makes a heavy complaint that there is a house at the millhouse that belongs to her, her aunt who had it for her life being dead I desire you’ll inquire into this business and if there be any such thing let the poor Woman have her right for I will not have any one debarr ‘d of their just due. After the perusal of the paper of the names of a great many little Farms wch my father bought after he purchas’d Willwike I find he bought of Jno Glendening a Tenemt at Millhouse and the widow to have a little Close & house for her life or 13s4d and the rent to the Ldpp 3s4d which is all I can find about this poor woman. Desire you’ll give me an acct of it. I am yr assured friend
