Good father I have sent by this carrier two sugar loaves they weigh
29 pound & a quarter, which cometh to 15s 6d & 6d the bags
I have sent therewith 6 pounds of pepper I bought of Mr Morly 2s 6d
a pound, I have bought mace he selleth it for 10s a pound, Cloves 4s
6 a pound when my mother needeth she shall have some of mine, my
uncle Okeover could help me with no more, I have sent therewith a
gallon & a pint of salad oil which cost 6s & 4d, I am very glad to
hear that my sister Lettice shall come up, my mother shall have
her gone as soon as I can get it made, my partner is gone this day
to speak with Mr Darrell about your accompts for until he have been
with the auditor he cannot certify him of your accompts, because
you had but a letter of Sir Amias Paulet's and not an acquittance my
partner telleth me that he will go through with it with as much speed
as he may, my brother Anthony is at Croydon where the Queen lieth
he saith he delivered your letter to Mr Greville & after went for
answer & he told him that day he had written you an answer
by his man, I am sworn that my uncle John continueth in his old disordered
life, I sent you down a thing from the high commissioners which would
have restrained him, my partner saith that would have been the
best course he will not let his son wear a coat of penistone he
saith it is too hot he you caused me to by buy buffin for him Lil & Walter
which shall be made up with as little cost as I can, because you shall
see how the sickness increaseth I have sent you a bill of the last
week and this. So craving your daily blessing and my mother's
to me and my daughter I cease to trouble you: Warwick Inn this
11 of May

Your obedient Daughter.
Anne Broughton
