Good Brother. you may think me very forgetful that I have not writ
unto you. never since I came hither: but I had thought before now. to
have seen you: and now hearing by this bearer. that my father-in-law
is gone to London. I do not know when we shall come into Staffordshire:
I thank you good brother. I am much bound unto you. for the
great pains. and care you have of me: and I hope I shall not live
to forget it: y my husband told me. my father-in-law was about to take
the parsonage of Leigh. for him and me to dwell in: but by my good
will. I will never keep house. till I go to dwell at Badger. for if I
should. it wold but be a means to defraud us of a better place: but
my hope is. you will be careful of me. as you ever have been: I thank
my brother Trew. he is willing we shall table there: and my husband
is so determined: he and my nephew Robert went yesterday to
Cause Castle: to hunt with Mr Thynne and are not yet come home: my
brother Broughton I give God thanks: mendeth very well. and desireth
to be very kindly remembered to you. and my good sister: with the like
from my sister Broughton. my sister Okeover. my niece Mary. and myself.
to you both: desiring our duty may be remembered. in the best manner
to my mother: I leave you to the providence. of the Almighty: Broughton
this :2: of February:
Your most assured loving sister
Lettice Kynnersley
