Good Madam
I am sorry that your Ladyship should so often
mention the want of the draught of assignment
which my man tells me is at Coventry
fair engrossed, where I purpose (God willing)
to be on Saturday the 27th of June
at night, and will take order that
it be sent you at that time, and had
given direction that this bearer should
have called for it but my man seems
not willing to send down the key of his
desk where he saith it lies, and I
am willing also to examine it if
before it go, this will beget no
delay for that Sir Thomas Burdett
is at London & will not be so soon
in the Country, nor hath been in the
Country since the beginning of the
Easter term so as it could not have
been sealed by him since that time/
I did receive the paper books you
sent & have them in my Custody, but
it is yet uncertain whether the trial
will be in the Country or at the bar
And so in haste I take leave & will
ever remain

At your Ladyship's dispose
John Wightwick
Inner Temple the
18th of June 1635
