Sir I have sent you a true Inventory of my Mother's goods
I would have sent it sooner but I wanted a Convenient
messenger, you may see by it that my Mother's substance was
not great, But that it was Chiefly in Heaven where I
Doubt not but she hath the fruition of them, I am Assured
she ought not any thing to any man but good will, & so
with many thanks for my kind entertainment, I with
prayers to God for my Cousin your wife's safe Deliverance
I Commit you to the Almighty

She that thinks herself
most bound to
you for your fatherley
care: Jane Ashley
