be changed it is so good of breadth that my man
William told tme it might lack a quarter & be
enough for you for a Jerkin hose and stockings
I have sent you therewith buttons five dozen which cost
11s and an ell dim[= half] of canvas 12s because I would
have it well packed up. I bought an ell of coarse

I thank you I hear you have bestowed a coat
on my son wher if you would have me to buy
anything else let me hear from you by this bearer
the next time, for I hope after he hath been
here once I shall be ready to come down thus
craving my mother's daily blessing & yours Ito
me my sister & my daughter I commit you to God
who keep you in health Warwick Inn the last of

Your obedient Daughter.
Anne Broughton
