Good brother at Michaelmas last I should have received my money from
my Lord which you know was due to me. but Mr Wingfield sent by my son
to desire me to stay till our Lady Day and then he would pay it and .5l. for
the use of it. I told my son when he went from me if my Lord would give
him .20..20l. a year during his life and that I might have .10l. of it during my life
I would be very willing to give it his Lordship but since my Lord came home
I have not heard from my son I am therefore to entreat you good brother
to do so much for me as to know my Lord his pleasure here in that I may have
this for my son or else to pay me my money I have my Lord his hand
for it which I will send you if the money be ready and entreat you to receive it
for me. I pray you if you can speak first with my son to know what answer
he hath of my Lord and then to do for me as you think best for I have nobody
under God to trust to but yourself. and thus with my best and kindest commendations
to yourself and my good sister with thanks for her token. I commit you both
with all yours to the Almighty to whom I pray daily for your life and health
11 of May
Your poor loving Sister
Margaret Trew
