Sir I have written a letter to Sir Walter Harcourt a little to put
him in remembrance of his promise that at the furthest
I should be paid the beginning of this Michaelmas term
I pray you to send one with it to him & to request
his answer/. my partner and I are to thank you for your
hops which will stand her in stead for here it cost her
at Bishop's Castle 7d the pound/. News from London
my partner heard that all her friends there are well
But that her neighbor and good friend. Mr
Sergeant Branthwait Languisheth still of
a conceited sickness not like to escape//. here
we have no News but all the country in great quiet
and health. but the weather is very changeable
for harvest, and the harvest Late oats in most
places not got in. Thus not having else with
duties remembered from everybody here I commit
you and yours to the tuition of the Almighty not forgetting
commendations to yourself my mother Aunt Lettice. &
blessings to Nob Mall and Lill. this 9th of September
Yours Richard Broughton
